Wednesday Wanderment

This is a picture I took while hiking with the Philosopher last fall. Yes, I know it’s not fall yet, but I am getting SOOOO pumped about it. This fall is going to be wonderfully exciting, because my book will be published by then! YAY! Okay, back to earth, I want you to enjoy some Wednesday Wanderment.

Seriously Cool Idea

Novel in a  Notebook!

I may SERIOUSLY have to do that for my next novel. I am one of those super organized people when it comes to much of my life, but when it comes to novel-writing, I’ll admit that I have notes and random scribblings stashed around in various notebooks//journals. That sounds like a FABULOUS idea.

As well, one of the posts I discussed yesterday in my Wednesday Wanderment talked about writing a novel in a notebook first before transcribing it into the computer. I actually may try this as well. I love the feel of pen and paper. It is so romantic and it can really help me, personally, to get into the zone a bit better. The interwebs are just so distracting!

What do you think? Novel in a Notebook might be a good idea? Do you ever write your novels down on paper first? I’d love to hear from people who organize their stories physically in a notebook and those who also write their first draft on paper! Share, share, share!
