And if you are looking for ways to launch your notebooks - you should check out this great idea they got from a conference.
My resources for writer's notebooks are over on my wiki - including my favorite Unlucky Writer's handout that can be shared with parents and students.
And I leave you with some of my favorite quotes to inspire writing:
- The art of writing is the art of discovering what you believe. Gustav Flaubert
- Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart. William Wordsworth
- If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead, either write things worth reading or do things worth writing. Benjamin Franklin
- You can't wait for inspiration, you have to go after it with a club. Jack London
- Convince yourself that you are working in clay, not marble, on paper not eternal bronze: Let that first sentence be as stupid as it wishes. Jacques Barzun
