How is everybody doing out there during the month of NaNoWriMo? Mine is off to a slow start and I’ve been taking a much needed break because of all the events that I’ve been involved in this year. During my quiet week I had one of those moments when you’re driving in your car and you get a brilliant blip of an idea for your story and then it fades as the day goes on.
I needed my hands on the steering wheel and Siri decided not to cooperate that day, so there was no saving my brilliance. Still being too busy, I felt a wave a of sadness come over me as my brain struggled to remember what I was thinking about at the end of the day. I was too tired.
I don’t know about anyone else out there but moments of dialogue, plot twists, and ways to fix my story decide to pop-up like a jack-in-box or whack-a-mole before they suddenly disappear. It’s always a moment when I don’t have a way to write down my thoughts.
I know there are some famous writers out there who keep post-it notes on their dash for such occasions but I’m always in a hurry. If you’ve been writing for a while, you know exactly what I’m talking about. Stories can happen at any time. So, try to be more prepared than I am when it happens.
If you want to share what you do to stay prepared for story moments, then let me know!
During the months of November and December I will be posting but only a few times a month so that I can work on my writing.
