I carry a little Molskine notebook around with me, most of the time. I jot down phrases, story ideas, random thoughts, and even the occasional bits of a poem or lyric. The pocket-sized volume is very important to me. It holds a lot of the ingredients that are constantly simmering in my creative mind. Another thing I will write in the notebook: Blog ideas. Last week I made several quick entries of topics I wanted to blog about. This week, I attempted to write those blog posts.
