    An Assortment Really

    Since most guys have switched to digital recorders, I have raided the supply closet and grabbed a large box of the journalist notepads. They are slim and perfect for the quick grocery list or the freaky dream that wakes you up in the middle of the night and you don't want to...

    In The Bed

    I actually have a notebook in my bed in the drawers. However if it's just a short little idea or a place or name I'd like to use I normally type it into my phone as it's quicker to do.

    Oh Ipods How I Love Thee =)

    When I try to go to sleep that's when I tend to really start thinking for some reason, I guess that's why my insomnia runs rampant. It's always said that if you can't sleep and something is on your mind you should write it down so you can remember it and also to alleviate the...

    And Always Two Pens.

    Not just my bed, but every where I go. I even took one to my best friend's mother's funeral; she understood, for the most part. I tried to be discreet, but the magma of inspiration cannot be stalled or stabled. I try to record as many things as possible, but the net is not big...

    Well, A Yellow Legal Tablet

    Also only use pencils, never pens. Make too many mistakes otherwise, and when I'm half awake my penmanship isn't as good so I need all the help I can get. Mostly what I get when an idea wakes me up is a solution to a problem, which gets recorded as an incomplete sentence...

    Notebook By My Bed

    It is an idea.  Many times, I have awaken and had a great idea about something and told myself, when I wake up, I'll write it down and unfortunately when I did, that thought vanished.

    Not Just One...

    I don't know how many notebooks I have by my bed but I always need them because my ideas come at the most impromptu of times. I could get inspired by something as small as a simple thought or as a big as a rainy day. I also need a pen by me at ALL times for that reason. Weather...

    Tired Of Being Tired

    to the time-beaten face in the mirror i come home. each shadow there accents each furrow and bone. green glowing numbers--a mute metronome-- count minutes and hours i spend here alone.     (by me) I awaken tired, get ready for work. Dishes from last night remain--I cook, they...

    Nothing To Read Here, Just Go On By

    I'm too sleepy to sleep. Or it's the nausea. My head swims, and I can Barely think. So I try to write. Like this may focus my concentration, the way this coffee wrenches my guts. But that's a peripheral issue to the nausea. I want food, but when I eat, I feel ill. So I go...

    The Best Inspirations Come Late In The Evening Or In The Middle Of The Night

    The late evenings and nights are always the best moments to find inspiration. I have watched interviews from musicians who said they could write the best lyrics late in the evening or in the night. I am currently writing my first book and I also make sure i have a notebook at the...

    Of Course!

    Waking up and needing to write doesn't occur as often as it used to, considering I'm writing so much during the day that I don't need to write at night as much, but still happens.A true writer goes nowhere without their notebook.That INCLUDES, sleep land!

    My Journal

    I keep a journal beside my bed and I write any random feelings I have in there. I also have a dream journal that I record all of my meaningful dreams in.

    The dream world is a land unknown for the most . This world has never been properly explained. Everyone is afraid of what is happening, as if it were a cursed world where vampires reign only. What we can see is primarily a world of beauty, colors, intense emotion and deep...
