Why do my best blog ideas come to me when I can't write them down?
Sometimes I will be in the middle of rush-hour traffic - unable to grab my journal and pen when inspiration hits. In minutes I have composed a whole post in my head with images and everything. I have even been known to chuckle to myself (ignoring the weird looks fellow motorists are flashing my way), POSITIVE I have a winner... until I get home and can't remember a single line.
Then sometimes it will happen just as I am nodding off to sleep. I tell myself to get that pen and paper in my drawer, but myself doesn't listen.
Write it down! Creative Me says.
I'm too comfy. Stubborn Me responds.
You'll never remember this in the morning. Creative Me insists.
Oh yes I will... I am even clever enough to create an acronym to remind myself. Retorts Stubborn Me.
But Creative Me was right.
Both of Us forgot.
And I am left with a lame post about how I can't remember that great story I had last night.
