I started a writer's notebook when I was teaching fourth grade. I firmly believe that teachers are better teachers of writing when they are writers themselves. I've continued to write in my writer's notebook while being a stay at home mom. I start my day writing in my notebook while everyone else is still sleeping. I love the warm weather when I start my day writing on my front porch with my morning coffee. Some days I write a few words while other days a few pages. I fill it with observations, thoughts, lists, poems, sketches, and quotes. My second notebook is almost filled up and I am looking forward to purchasing a third notebook. I love decorating the covers. My current notebook is decorated with positive quotes that inspire me.
