The Importance Of a Writing Journal

Keep a writer's notebook at all times!!! I will admit that I am really bad at keeping up with my notebook. The main reason for this is that most of my ideas come to me in the evening when I'm too tired and lazy to write it down.
This is horrible!!!!! If I have an idea in the middle of the night I usually think, "I'll remember it until the morning, then I'll write it down. "
I forget it over the course of the night. How frustrating can you get?

Why should you keep a writer's journal?
I'll give you some reasons why.
  1. When having a writer's block, you can go and dig up an old idea.
  2. You can use your writer's journal for your short story skeleton.
  3. You won't ever forget those amazing ideas again!
  4. You won't have to use pages of your everyday journal on your writing notes.
  5. Your life as a writer will be ever so much simpler.
Enjoy your writing journal!
