Soak up the Stories around You
How much writing material have you come into contact with throughout your life?
“We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out.”
― Ray Bradbury
Without even really trying, you’re constantly absorbing information, overhearing conversations, seeing new sites, and experiencing life moments. But how do you call up those stories, conversations and experiences when you sit down to write a new story?
To help you retain all those nuggets of story gold, try jotting down observations, thoughts and descriptions in a notepad that you carry with you. When the time comes to write, you’ll have a notebook full of inspiration.
We’d love to hear from you! How do you spill your stories out onto the page?
