Sometimes I can be writing and a great idea pops into my head. So I jot it down quick, making notes, then I go back to what I was doing. It could be story ideas or thoughts for a scene I plan to write late… or something genius. But when the idea hits, its best to get it while it’s fresh.
Today I had this beyond awesome idea. Thing is, I don’t remember it. I mean no matter how hard I try to recapture that moment, its gone.
I wasn’t prepared. I usually carry my phone which I take notes in. Didn’t have that. No pen. No paper. No nothing. In the middle of a store with nothing to write with. All I had were my prayers that I’d make it out the store to my car and write it down before I forget….
Long story short: To skip out on a lot of heartache and pain, always be prepared.
I’m going to go die now.
