If you want to write anything for publication or pleasure may as well get yourself a notebook or exercise book depending on how mobile you are during the day. Using a notebook, Dictaphone, or mobile phone somehow, may be good for people on the move. For writer’s in one place most of the time, all of those ways are good, but a writer in one place may use an exercise book effectively. The idea is to write, jot, or note down what comes to mind, your inspirations, your thoughts, that may become stories, poems, articles, and so on. But not every idea is worth its weight in gold, but I still write them down.
