One of those moments again...

...when you wished for pen and paper or just for your mind to be able to hold onto that brilliant scene or dialogue a bit longer...and suddenly it's gone.

Although I have a notebook on my nightstand, I've never really used it for what it was intended - to write down ideas that come to me while my mind wanders. Every time I wake up from a dream, utterly in knots and overlfowing with ideas that are vivid movies in my mind, those ideas become as slippery as an eel and elude me before I even have the chance to grab a pen. 
It's rather frustrating, really.


  1. I totally identify with this problem, although I was pleased with myself today when overflowing with idea while driving, I actually made a point of making voice notes on my phone :)
    Perhaps I should take my phone to bed too...

    1. Oh, that is a good idea! I'll keep it in mind.
      Now I just have to figure out what to do when I'm struck with an idea while under the shower or doing the dishes - then that happens to me more than I would like. :)
