2013 A to Z Blogging Challenge. Some warm weather is finally arriving but I'm might wait until after dark to visit some of these other great blogs found on THE list.
J: Journal. For quite a while I used to carry a spiral journal with me nearly where ever I went. I kept it at my side when I was reading or watching a movie. I would jot down word usages that caught my hear or perhaps interesting names of people and places. Things on the news that seemed like a story waiting to be created. Whenever I watched the history channel or one of the science channels, I would see some things that I thought might add to a story one day.
For whatever reason, I stopped carrying that journal. It's sitting idle on my desk. Look at that retirement countdown on the right hand side of my blog. During my retirement, I'm going to use that journal more often. I going to collect those ideas and words so that I might use them someday.
Do you keep a notebook or journal handy to jot down ideas? Do you sometimes see things on the news or an educational show that gives you ideas?
