Writers' Notebooks: 'A Junkyard Of The Mind'

Posted at 7:48AM Friday 23 May 2014

A writer's notebook is a junkyard; a junkyard of the mind. In this repository of failed attempts, different inks speak of widely-spaced times and places, the diverse scrawls of varying levels of calligraphic awkwardness, lack of firm writing-surfaces, different modes of transportation.

All the places a good idea might blossom into something bigger and better.

No writer should believe in serendipity. All of us do.
