Try This! - Keep a Variety of Notebooks

From April Wright -

A while back I used to write everything on loose leaf and about a day later, there would be like six different sheets that would be unclassified and strewn all the place. I always hate to admit that I could be dysfunctional and unorganized so I threw a bunch of notebooks on my desk and willed myself to use them to my advantage. 

Now I have around three different notebooks, one for poetry, one for unorganized thoughts and scenes, and one dedicated to my novel that is progress. Now I have an obsession with notebooks and I seem to always bring out more when the time calls for a topic to have its own distinguished notebook!

Try using different notebooks for different projects, trips, or ideas. You might become obsessed too!
