I carry a special notebook with me to every class I go to, and sometimes when I go out. In this notebook only things related to my writing are allowed. I have the first couple of pages blocked off for one off sentences or ideas, or other random thoughts I might have. I write poems in there, stories, blog ideas, and my outline for Abstaining from Permanence went in there, too. It’s almost empty again! This is my second one.
Carrying a notebook gives you the chance to write any idea that pops into your head. However, there’s the problem of people not liking to hand-write. So, you probably have a cell phone. And in this device there is a module for keeping notes (or if it’s a smartphone you can go download one). You may have a character limit, but you can make multiple ones for these ideas that come to you. You can send texts to yourself or save them as drafts.
If you’re like me, you have crazy adventure dreams. I’d keep a notebook by the bed too, because if you’re also like me, these awe-inspiring dreams and random ideas don’t last long in your mind. That random little idea may spawn something interesting.
Well, it could just be something that you never use too. At least you have it though. Main point: Have the ability to write down the idea at all times.
Do you do this? Do you do something different that this? Let me know, maybe I’ll steal your idea.
