End of the Notebook Notes

It's always a bit of a nostalgic time when I finish one creative writing notebook and move on to the next. And this is one of those times.

My beautiful Van Gogh notebook is now full of scribblings and ramblings and doodles and ideas and blog topics and more weirdness. So I took myself out for some froyo to celebrate.

I have the next notebook purchased from Barnes and Noble and ready to go, but before I say goodbye to this friend who has been with me the past year and a half, here are some of the weird scribblings we've developed together.

"On the night of the full moon, Petie wears his glasses. On this night it is important that he wears his glasses, because on this night, he has monster school."

"Cats are people too. Sometimes they like chasing bugs around the house. Sometimes they just want to sleep."

"Like bullets they have no purpose outside of a body."

"Idea: becoming college roommates with Death."

"A little boy gets help from an alien to find the impostors who replaced his parents"

"Is there an exception to the rule that there are exceptions to every rule?"

Hope that adds a little inspiration to your day. Good bye, Van Gogh notebook. It's been grand!

Write on!

  1. Wonderful little observations and notes - I especially liked the bullet one. Is that available for use?

  2. Haha, thank you :) And yes, I believe it is, though I have no recollection where I heard it. But steal away!

  3. Going through old notebooks can be inspiring and very confusing; no idea what some of it means and can't decipher the handwriting. It's awesome when you find a great idea you totally forgot about.

  4. I love the idea of using notebooks. Jo Rowling mapped out the entire Harry Potter series using them.

    1. Haha :) Oh, I don't know about that, I'm sure it would seem completely inane to the people not inside my head :)
