An Indispensable Writing Tool

An Indispensable Writing Tool

A small but indispensable tool if you're serious about writing is a notebook; I mean the paper kind and not the computer. Yes, that's right, a notebook. It should be carried around whenever you leave your home or office. Here's why:

1. You just don't know when an idea will strike. Unless you have a photographic memory, you'd want to write down that idea immediately so you may study it at a later time. Ideas often come when you are aware of the sights and sounds around you.

2. It's better to write down experiences as much as possible in real time then try to relive and write about it later. For example a first-time visit to a park or rain forest can produce emotions or feelings that would be difficult to duplicate in writing if recalled by memory when it's long over.

3. You might meet an important or exciting personality whom you'd like to quote verbatim. To write about it later out of memory might cause you to misquote the person, which will render your article false. What's worse is that you might draw the ire of the person misquoted.

4. When you have a chosen subject matter, it helps very much to collect information. An article with lots of information endears you to readers, especially those who go to the Internet for information. Jotting down as much information you can get will also give you fodder for more future articles. Information will also generate those all-imortant ideas.

Of course, it goes without saying, that carrying a notebook will entail carrying that other indispensable tool, a pen (or pencil). Carrying these are unobtrusive, lightweight and can easily be retrieved and used.

They may seem old-fashioned, but they work nonetheless.

Wouldn't it be great if you could find a way to write and
article once and post it to multiple article directories and
blogs and and still have Google rate it as unique content.

I found a simple tool that will rewrite your articles into
brand new ones in just a few seconds.

  • Timothy Eller,

    This article is full of simple yet profound truth. A few months back I put a tablet in my car the tablet sat idle in the car for some of those months. Having the tablet in the car was step one remembering to use the tablet was step two. Having the tablet quite handy. Great read.

    I do keep a notebook and pen with me when I am away from home. I am always getting ideas and I jot them down for future reference. Also I keep a notebook and pen on my night stand too. I pray and meditate before I go to sleep and ideas come to me sometimes, so I wake up and jot them down. Thank you Timothy for sharing your post in the community.
