Developing as a writer

I’ve spent much of the last few years discovering and developing my voice as a writer. The truth is that I do this because I have a love for it…a passion.

But my blind spot, as a writer and a multimedia specialist, is that I can get so caught up in making sure it’s my authentic voice that I write/develop media only every so often – not on a weekly or daily basis that all the big bloggers and journalists recommend.

So what are some ways that I can capture my thoughts/images quickly, but still maintain my voice?

I have some ideas of my own, but certainly open to other suggestions. I def. need to keep a notebook/sketchbook of my ideas (in ONE notebook! I am notoriously collecting notebooks and things to writie in.) I think that way, my ideas can be sketched out in one place.

  1. I used to try the notebook thing … but now I have a digital recorder. So, I just record my ideas as they arise.

    Later I transfer the mp3 to my computer. And, if it makes sense depending on the conversation I had with myself … I may add a task to my e-day planner.

    Best, Lyle

  2. *facepalm* i need to get in the habit of using my voice recorder! it was deeply ingrained during my interior design school days that we should keep a sketchbook, so i automatically went to that.

    plus, i can use bookmark repositories (like digg and de.lic.ious). I completely forgot i already had those resources!
