Lazy Days of Summer

Summer is finally here, I mean the heat and routine of it all. It may cause you to stay in doors or at the pool, beach, even vacation spot. If that is the case leave your computer on (when home) or carry a note book (when out and about). You never know when inspiration is going to hit.
I loved how in the movie, "Becoming Jane," Jane always had a pen and paper with her. Whenever someone said something she liked, she quickly wrote it down for later use.
This could happen to you this summer!!!
The kids, a neighbor, friend or relation could say something that your character would say at some point. So be armed with pen and paper like "Jane". Be ready once inspiration strikes! You are carefree. It's summer!!! I don't care who you are or what you do! It's summer and you are a kid again :) Enjoy the sun! Soak it in!!! Something is about to happen to inspire you!!! Today!


  1. I think this is a great idea! My writing teacher back in college encouraged me to do this, and I haven't done it enough, but I'm always grateful when I do!

  2. I need to be better about writing my ideas down. I keep telling myself I will remember. Of course all of you know what that means. I really should learn from my mistakes.

  3. Thanks for the reminder.
    I'm about to spend 7 days around a woman that embodies a MC. Must. Take. Notes.


  4. Thanks Mary! You inspire me. I haven't been carrying around my pen and notebook lately--I'll have to do that.

    Hope you're enjoying your summer!
