When it comes to my stories, I like to jot stuff down and have it where I can see it. I’ve thought about writing on the wall in the writing nook before, but I knew it probably wasn’t the best of ideas. And then, like one of those lightning strikes, I thought about chalkboard paint, and I couldn’t get the idea out of my head. So I picked a swatch of wall in the writing nook.
And I blocked out what I wanted to chalkboard.
And I painted it. And waited. And painted again. And waited. And then one more coat, and I had a chalkboard spot.
And then I put up a border around it (which I’m not quite sold on, but kind of like, so I haven’t decided yet if it will stay or go) and started a bit of plotting.
With some pumpkins because it’s fall.
So that’s my brilliant idea. I’ve got this spot right here next to me where I can write stuff out, and where I can see everything all laid out without flipping back and forth to a document. It will have the salient details, and I’m thinking it will be a big help when I start the next story.
And hell, it’s there even if I just want to doodle. 😀
