A Writer's Notebook

I thought this was a really cute video from Peter Macala, an English teacher, who is encouraging his students to keep a "writer's notebook," which is something very similar to how you will be using the reading notes for this class: A Writer's Notebook.

And, of course, you can keep other kinds of writing notes too: if you overhear a snatch of conversation standing in line somewhere that you think would be useful in a story, save it on your phone! Or maybe you will decide to start carrying around a tiny notebook in which to jot down things you see or ideas you think of. Keep track of little details you notice about things, places, people... anything at all! You can then use the notes from your blog posts, your phone, from your physical notebook, etc. to write your stories for this class each week!
