Scrapbooking

My favorite type of scrapbook album as a writer is the Westrim Crafts 12 x 12 Strap-Hinge Album. It allows me to add extra pages as needed for my album. I have kept a month-by-month album some years to chronicle my writing. It has so rewarding personally.

As a writer, it’s so easy to forget the positive experiences of critique group friends and joy of working on various projects. Too many rejection letters pile up and too many days go by without seeing much progress on a book-length manuscript. By keeping a scrapbook of each month’s highlights and little joyful moments as a writer, I am inspired and encouraged throughout the year. Now, as I look back at my collection of pictures of friends in my critique groups, copies of positive comments from editors, and descriptions of fun experiences I had while writing various manuscripts I worked on this past year, I’m excited to keep on going as a writer and write, write, write!
