Moleskine Magic: One Shot Wednesday

After much contemplation I finally decided on the identity that I wanted to give my new Moleskine.

Having lots of ordinary A5 notebooks in which I dash off my ideas in illegible scrawl, it was important to me that this notebook should be used differently. So, yes, it has been sitting on my desk, untouched, all this time while waiting patiently for some inspiration.

Painting a Picture with Words came to me as I thought about the original letter I had written that won me the Moleskine in the first place. I decided to make my Moleskine Notebook an Inspiration-Progression notebook showing the development of my ideas from original freewrites, images and drafts to the completed poem or prose reference.

The handwriting may still be illegible scrawl, but at least I’ve made a start!

No, not caffeine hits!
I developed a poem from the ideas in the moleskine,


written as a judgemental depiction of an imagined character, inspired by experience of a bullying colleague, nick-named ‘Lemon Lips’ that evolved from Kafka’s Metamorphosis theme.
