The Digital Quill’s Writing Tips – Always Have Note-Taking Tools on You

This isn’t negotiable (unless you’re in the shower I guess, but you might still want to have tools in the bathroom for when you get out). Years ago, I didn’t care so much about listening to inspiration when it knocked on my door. I still remember needing six months before remembering the development I needed for my first novella. Those were long six months.

While I love notebooks no matter what, I always make sure to have smaller ones I can carry on my person at all times. I also make sure to have two pencils instead of one in my purse, because I sometimes don’t realize one is almost at its end and found myself with a non-functioning pencil right when I had to take notes!

Smartphones and tablets also have great options and apps for notetaking, voice recording, or any shape or form of jotting down thoughts and ideas. I am still a dinosaur without a smartphone so I still tend to stick to pen and paper for random notetaking.

One way or the other, having anything to take notes on you is a must have for a writer.

What about you?

  • Do you stay prepared for whenever inspiration hits you?
  • Do you have certain tools or device you always keep with yourself?
  • If not, are you willing to make a change?

    1. It is wonderful to have inspiration strike but wouldn’t it be beautiful if it respected some kind of office hours? 😉
