My Creative Notebook – the inspiration

I love notebooks, I love the physical act of writing, of creating diagrams, charts, mind-maps, doodling, thoughts tumbling out of my head faster than I can type, or sometimes even articulate.

I especially like new notebooks, the choosing of a beautiful notebook for special thoughts, a journal written on a holiday abroad, capturing the mood, pressing treasures between the pages. There are so many options and sizes, to suit every possible occasion.

Most of my notes are now written in pencil, since one eventful night, when I drifted off to sleep oblivious to the fact that my pen with it’s vibrant turquoise ink which had captured my thoughts so beautifully; had slipped from my fingers and was creating a permanent stain on a pure white duvet cover!

But as that night illustrated so many thoughts will often come to you just before you go to sleep, or when you are doing something else, and yes, you can capture these in the notes on your phone, or any other piece of technology, but the physical act of writing is very special.

And so to this space, My Creative Notebook, where I hope to share with you ideas, thoughts, words, books, resources, art, photography, events and  interviews, which I hope you will enjoy and find inspiring.

Thank you for visiting.
