'It is a good idea to have a page in a notebook where you jot down, as they come to you, ideas of topics to write about. It could be anything.

Making a list is good. It makes you start noticing material for writing in your daily life, and your writing comes out of a relationship and its texture.

.... So the list also helps to activate your writing quickly and cut through resistance.'
