Today’s Topic – Using composition notebooks so you do not lose your Unicorns, spackle, and Twilight posters
Years ago, I had a great idea. It involved something with Unicorns, spackle, and a Twilight poster. It was awesome. It was going to be a starter for an alternate earth where I could write urban fantasy. I was laughing, and my heart strings got plucked like a banjo.
The problem was by the time I got home that was all I could remember. I cannot even remember how I could connect unicorns, spackle and Twilight poster. Well, except for using spackle to paste the poster to the unicorn. Now, I do find the idea amusing. However, I have no idea why I would think it would make an interesting alternate earth.
So, I realized I had a problem. I cannot remember all the good ideas I have. So, I started looking for a good way to keep track of my great ideas by projects. Check out the episode and see the system I currently use to track my ideas. And yes, I used composition notebooks.
