If you want to get into blogging, or designing of some sort – it’s quite helpful if you have an abundance of ideas. If you’re like me, ideas come at all times and you might forget one or two, or all of them if you don’t arm yourself with tools to harness the brainwaves that come at any point during the day.
I took the advice that Elsie from A Beautiful Mess gave a while back and I got a sketchbook. Can I say that she was absolutely and completely right? Most of my ideas come to me when I’m doing things, usually mundane things that don’t require too much active thinking; driving, showering, laying in bed trying to fall asleep, etc.
Now that I’ve invested in a sketch book (that fits in my purse or any bag I might have for the day), thoughts turn into pictures with captions & detail so that I can revisit them later. Even if you’re not looking to blog, or design anything, but maybe just to capture some of your best bursts of thought – carry a sketch book.
