Have you ever found yourself with a great story idea in the middle of your shower? Soap suds are running down your neck and you keep repeating that perfect line of dialogue or the solution to your plot hole over and over in your head so you don't forget it until you have the time to write it down?
I used to brainstorm whole series in the shower and I can't remember how most of that story went because you can't take a notebook and pencil in the shower with you. Expect you totally can! A few years ago my wonderful and supportive husband bought me my Auqanotes Waterproof Notepad. I'm not being compensated in any way to say that this thing works. It really is waterproof. I have used almost the whole notebook in the water and not lost a single note.
Another fun tool I discovered this past year is a writing prompt book from Barnes & Noble called "Complete the Story." I like it because if I'm at a loss as what to write there are writing prompts that are already started and I can fill the page and stop or I can keep writing the story if I find that words flowing. Plus if I ever need a new story I can look back at what I've written and find inspiration. My mom has the same book and it's fun to compare how different our stories are even though we start out with the same prompt.
I realize I talk a lot about products that are useful for writers but it's just because I want to share the tools that have been useful to me with all of you. Has anyone tried either of the tools above? Did you like them? Do you have any products you just love to write with?
Keep working on those masterpieces in progress. You've got this.
