Many famous writers—and not-so-famous and not-yet-famous writers—have kept a writing notebook: Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway, Larry David, Austin Cleon, Leonardo Da Vinci, and Virginia Wolff.
For writers, a notebook can be an essential tool. It's the place where you lead a writerly life, where you find interest and significance in the ordinary. Where you explore your fantasies, your observations, overheard conversations. In your notebook, you play with voice, capture character and characterizations, and sow seeds for future writing. This notebook also can include maps, collages, or sketches.
We’ll explore the early years of your life, let’s say the first five years. Bring photos, favorite childrens’ books, drawings. Don’t forget notebooks—at least two, one small and one larger with paper suitable for glue, photos, markers, et al. We know you’ll walk away with the start of a project or two, and a more intimate relationship with the Writer’s Notebook and with yourself.
