It took me a long time to start getting the stories out of my head and onto the page and I now aim to write something everyday

I run ideas around and my favourite method is to go for a walk and tell the story to myself. The ideas might come from something I’ve read, an overheard conversation or something I’ve seen

artefact cards Chapman PineI’ve used all types of notebooks over the years but now use Artefact Cards which I carry around with me at all times. I jot done ideas on the fly and use them to build the bare bones of a story

The cards are then stored in a business card holder so I can flip through them easily
