My creative habit: My best work happens when I strike a balance between planning and serendipity. When I started my A to Z book, I kept a little notebook for ideas (and added lots of scraps of paper when I didn't have the notebook handy). I added things randomly, but also thought in terms of categories: favorites, family, memories, nature, home. And the book definitely didn't turn out the way I imagined it when I started, but I'm happy with where spontaneity took me. Next week, I'll share my final A to Z page -- and a giveaway to celebrate!
