Your Thoughts and Story Ideas



One should always keep some kind of notebook if writing aspirations dwell within!

Sometimes the smallest thought can blossom into an idea for a wonderful story. And your thoughts on a daily basis should be recorded in a notebook that is private only to you. Within those pages come inspiration to fire aspirations!

Here are some of my little gems that have come along over the years as mere thoughts evoked from within a creative brain. They were written down in my special “Writer’s Notebook”.

No. 1 = “Without a dream, there is no story; nothing to tell.” (BAH)

No. 2 = “Surviving: Always, the biggest trial in life is life. You smile and give it away, and it comes back to you, one hundred-fold, and life is yours!” (BAH)

No. 3 = “If we all would stop to think about the tracks we will leave behind, before going forward, there would be less derailments in life.” (BAH)

No. 4 = “Writing is in the blood, and it seldom leaves the writer lonely. It does often inspire a desire to connect with others of a like nature, even as the passion to fill pages consumes.” (BAH)

No. 5 = “Stray thoughts lead to deep, wandering trails.” (BAH)

Is it really any wonder that birds inspired man to seek flight?

Observe your world, write your thoughts, create your stories!

About bahelberg1

Since I first touched a pencil to paper, I've been writing. Where that passion has taken me as I lived life is explored in my Primary blog, . I love animals, including race horses, about whom I have written much, and I've always had a dog in my life. Shouldn't animals have their say? In my Second Primary blog, , I give them a chance to speak. In the Composite blog , I explore my life's journey and observations. Other interests -- poetry, sports, photography, thankfulness, story ideas, self-publishing, story art, fiction, and more -- get their due in my other (17) blogs. I'm from a rural community in Ohio, lived nine years in Vermont, then returned to my native Henry County in 1980. I've worked for various local newspapers and attended classes in writing over the years before retiring to free-lancing in 2008. It was after my migration back to Ohio that I began BAT Publishing in earnest. It is strictly a self-publishing enterprise in that I publish my own works -- novels, novelettes, short stories with my Roughcraft Art -- in my own softcover, or loose-leaf notebook, designs. My photos and artwork are also incorporated in the books. Prior to this endeavor, I produced a periodic story booklet for young writers only entitled "Connections". Its success sparked my interest in self-publishing my own titles.
