There are times when I get great story ideas through dreams. Sometimes, I find a dream to be a great starting point or it will guide me to a new, awesome idea. The problem is, I don’t write them down.
I always mean to. I tell myself I will. I think I’ll be able to remember them in the morning. Sometimes I do. But I still don’t write them down.
Whether I get distracted by something (video games) or work early in the morning (nope, just video games); I always find myself wishing I had taken a moment to write down that idea.
I even carry a small notebook to write down ideas I have during the day. I don’t use it. It just sits in my pocket.
You’d think I’d learn from my mistakes, but you’d be wrong [at least in this case (and most cases)]. Clearly I like having ideas, I just don’t like writing them down. Maybe next time… (don’t hold your breath)?
