I have a book, a nice fat 2-inch notebook that I have had since high school and through out college that has all the handouts from my English class in them.
I have used the introduction and conclusion handout so many times and I have looked at the thesis sheets while contemplating my topic.
They have been useful to me over the years, even the poetry in the back I feel I have absorbed and used in many situations.
So As I embark on my freelance writing career, I think I will make a notebook of all that inspires. A print, down to earth, I can see it on the page notebook. And maybe it will come in handy someday.
