Why is it this way? So frustrating! Driving... in the shower... anywhere but near paper and pen.
This afternoon I was driving along heading back home when this boob cut his monstrous truck through the lanes of traffic - recklessly, of course. At the start of my local rush hour.
Instead of getting pissed as I usually would, the sight of him roving ahead of me transformed into a dual-reality moment where the truck flipped over and...
Needless to say, as my imagination continued the story in my head, I was inwardly cussing because I had no pen, no paper, no ability to even attempt to write a thing at the moment. I mean, the passage was eloquently drafting itself perfectly in my head! I prayed to remember bits and pieces once I pulled into my driveway to jot down a few things.
My husband sometimes uses his cell phone to record things he needs to remember when he's in the car. I'm not that savvy. Nor, do I have the capacity to even think about such convenience at the proper moment.
So, as I... write my first novel, commit myself to writing my blog each day in the 28 Day Blogging Challenge, write my Richmond Landmarks & Historic Districts Examiner articles, AND develop my web-based writing business, I now add the notes of my new thrilling fiction scene in my head to add to my current novel or the next.
Whew! That's a lot of writing! God, I thank You for the time!
I'm so grateful for the inspiration, too, indeed - whenever and however the moments arise! Just want to make sure I can recall them when I have to - and write it all down!
How do you handle these moments?
