When Vladimir Nabokov wrote he liked to use 3″ x 5″ cards which his wife typed up later as he dictated them. In Life magazine’s photo gallery, The Author of ‘Lolita’.
As I use notecards a lot to jot down memos as I travel I thought I might try this to actually finish my novel!
3 x 5 notecards for Lolita
The idea appeals to me, as there are only a few lines on the page. Not a whole page of white A4 making the prospect of filling it more daunting.
