    Keep a small notebook on you at all times, simply because you never know when an concept will pop into your head. An idea can come to you any time, such as when you’re on the train, walking through the park, or on an airplane, and you might not have anywhere to log the concept. I was once walking down the street, and saw this boy who looked so forlorn, and I took a notebook, and when I got onto the bus, I took out my notebook and began writing a back-story to the boy — why was he so upset? What happened to make him upset? From that, I got several ideas for different stories, one of which I am done with, and one that might become a novella. If you have a notebook and pen or pencil on hand, you are always close to something where you can log everything that comes from your thoughts. Ideas can come at any time, so it is good to be prepared for a flash of genius that will inevitably come.
