#11 on my 100 Ways To Be Creative list is to carry a notebook and pen with you wherever you go. I think that I’ve always done this, to be honest. The problem is making sure that I actually use it! So I’ve tried to use my notebook when I’m on public transportation, on trips, and in social situations (like bars or parties).
It’s great for jotting down funny quotes, making a list of ideas you just brainstormed, or just doodling. It’s also fun to have your friends join in and write stuff with you.
So I took a bunch of pictures of the inside of my notebook and I’m going to share them now. I really do encourage you to keep paper and a writing utensil with you at all times. Tape stuff in there, write stuff down, document your life. It can be an itty bitty notebook or a giant spiral one.
