Writer’s Notebook–Cut and Paste!
You’re Writers Notebook does not have to simply be writing. So many of the things we write are expressed through the visual. Show don’t tell, they say. The characters physical description, the setting, facial expressions, clothing, darkness… As writers we try to express the visual through the written word and how are we suppose to do that successfully if we don’t look at the things we try to describe?! So, my tip for you today is this:
Cut and paste pictures in your Writer’s Notebook!!!!
Put in family pictures, pictures from the internet, newspaper and magazine clipping, drawings, bubble letters, artistic prints, the cover of your favorite books or authors, and anything else you can get your hands on!!! Your Writer’s Notebook should be home to anything and everything that inspires you or makes you think about something in a different way. And that should never be limited to words.
