Just Taking Notes


I try to write on Sundays each week, but sometimes I just can’t think of anything.  I have thoughts in my head and thoughts I have written down, but none taking root.  Just notes.


Writing used to be so hard for me, especially in college.  It took me forever to write a paper!  Unlike my roommate, who would wake up 30 mins. before class, write hers and get an A.  I ended up with a C.  Ugghh!  I use to write poems in middle school and I really liked it.  I do write poems now, but not all the time.  Just taking notes.


Now I write quotes and really good ones, too.  Just thoughts.  None ever recurring, no two the same.  Just notes.  You’ll find them on instagram:  @lolarbrooksbooks.  I also write blog posts.  Very random stories, true stories that are worth a look-see: @lolarbrooks.wordpress.com.


Just taking notes, turned into quotes, that turned into poems, that turned into blog posts, that turned into books or was it the other way around?  Hmmmm…….By the way,  I’m also an Author!  Children’s books for now, but I have some other inspirational books for big people on the horizon.  Keep a lookout @lolarbrooks on Twitter and lolabrooks on LinkedIn.  Oh, one more thing,  I am an Awesome Teacher as well!   I write lesson plans, schedules, anchor charts, emails, PLC notes, grants, etc.


Journals, notes on my phone, notes on my IPad, manuscripts on my PC, blogs on my Chrome, poems on napkins, voice recordings, a YouTube channel………the list goes on and one.  Random!  Just taking notes!


So what are you doing with your life?


p.s.  Don’t tell my pastor I am Just Taking Notes in church!
