Want a cheaper more simple way to plan your life and keep track of things? I’ve seen what is called Bullet Journals, Now I may have covered these before but I really don’t recall if I have. I have set up my own for 2018 but I have some things to change for next year. Also I thought maybe I should have 2. a different one for each year, and maybe a more permanent one, even if its just to have a record of layouts (templates) to use.
I’ve noticed when I use a journal for the year, that by the end of the year (somewhere between July and October I end up not really interacting with it as I did when I started.
I don’t’ have nice neat handwriting or drawing

When I first received my MEDIUM newsletter and saw this
“I can’t get it out of my head. I just keep singing it over and over. It just comes out. I have no control over it. I’m singing it on elevators, buses. I sing it in front of clients. It’s taking over my life“
I thought it was going to be about ‘earworms’. Ear worms are those songs that no matter how much you may not like them, or just sick of them get stuck in your head and you just hear them over and over sometimes just that annoying chorus. (and not to get off topic but I Usually find the trick is to actually listen to the song then I’m good after and yes even if you don’t like it)
but when I saw the ‘Help me write’ part, I couldn’t figure out what that secret could be. After reading
I’d say this is a good way to GIVE yourself an earworm. It wouldn’t matter what song even one I liked I wouldn’t get any writing done, and I really do not wish to ruin what music I still listen to by doing this.
Ever hear that one gets their best Ideas while sitting on the toilet? Not sure why this is, I guess for those that just sit there, its because they are bored.
I’ve had many times I’ve gotten an idea in the shower, as well as laying down to sleep. That’s because you are relaxed and unplugged.
Spend a few times during the day with your phone, tablet or computer off. Unplug, leave a pen and notebook or journal near your bed (under your pillow or in your nightstand etc.) Write down when you have an idea. As for in the shower… the only idea I have to write down ideas is this Scuba Dive Underwater Writing Slate 6″ x 5″, . The odd thing though is it looks like a regular pencil that’s on there, so I’m not sure how that will work. I was thinking of a dry erase board just above the shower head so the marker doesn’t get washed off before you get to make a permanent note of it.
I believe Doing these 9 Things will improve your creativity. While I believe the person made it to be business oriented you can still follow it for anything you do. Collaboration, working with someone, can be fun. You can work off of each other back and forth.
I’ve found ideas and inspiration while reading books.or watching a movie or tv show. Something in it whether it was said or shown I ended up writing a poem about something in it. One of the books this happened with was in the Christopher Paolini’s Inheritance Cycle series (Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr, & Inheritance) I forget if I titled the poem or if I have even polished it to get ready to add to my book if I ever get one published.But one came from this, Sometimes when I read someone’s poem I end up writing sort of a response to it.
Sometimes things just pop into your head or an idea keeps coming back to you and you get a sign. Like I was starting to write a story and didn’t write in any character names yet. I was thinking of naming my main character after my birthstone and would you believe I went somewhere and there on the floor I found my birthstone!
Inspiration can come in writing exercises, blog posts, Pinterest and so much more! You can check my Pinterest boards pinterest.com/ @kymoDragon
One of the things I do is when I come across a post of someone else’s… I re-blog it. Sometimes I leave it at that other times I may put my own 2 cents to it
There have been magazine articles that have inspired me and when I use them.. I usually scan the page to include, so my reader knows the original side of the story, or as one of these was an advice column and I had my own advise for the columnist and the person who asked the question, I decided I would answer the same questions as I would.
Normally I’m full of ideas, and usually I’m working on them all at the same time (because my brain won’t shut up) So I try to mix say for my craft blog projects I find I want to do with those that I actually get to.
I’ve asked my readers from my blogs what they want to hear about but I never get an answer.
I’ve tried having a guest writer, here and there but they Also have to have a WordPress account…(which I don’t think they should have to.
