How to Be a Writer’s Notebook…

How to be a writer’s notebook…

Be at the ready any hour, day or night.

Travel with your person wherever they go.

Take on lists, memories, anecdotes, and quotes.

Embrace the photograph, it was chosen for a reason.

Prepare for the baring of soul and the occasional tear stain.

Be there to support your person as they live the beautiful writerly life.

And expect eraser rubbings and unfinished stories to get stuck in the gutter.

  2. Love it, Dana. This piece captures many ways we use our notebooks. I like the way you talk to us through the “How to Be” poem and love the advice – Be there to support your person with her writerly life!
