An Idea from Dickens
( Alberta, Canada)
The Great Victorian Novelist Charles Dickens carried a notebook with him everywhere he went. In it he would write character names, story titles, character ideas and descriptions, story plots, ideas, and anything he might one day include in a book.
I have started to do the same. Even if it seems lame, or you couldn't see where you could use it, write it. You never know what it could evolve into.
