As you probably know by now, if you’re a regular here at my blog, I’m a night owl and am most creative late evenings and nights. I was up writing until 2AM last night and could have continued for a couple more hours, but my cleaning lady comes on Tuesdays, and I had to go to bed so I’d be awake when she got here.
The problem is my brain. It was still in writing mode, and while I was tossing and turning in bed, squeezing my eyes shut, thinking You have to sleep now, Nell, or you’ll be a zombie tomorrow, it kept working.
But I’ve learned to listen, and if I come up with an idea I like, I…ehum…text myself the idea so I won’t forget it. (I would use paper and pen, but it’s dark!) 😁
Like this: (And what I’m about to write next in my story is Elliot and Mick having a phone conversation, where Elliot jokingly accuses Mick of not being romantic. And how Mick defends himself, saying he is.) (Oh, and also for backstory: Elliot loves Shakespeare)
This is going to be some kind of dialogue, I’ll write it today and try to make it work. Wish me luck.
And see the time stamps on those messages? How many of you think I was a zombie this morning? 🙂
What do you do when you get and idea you don’t want to forget? 🙂
