More Ideas than time!

09 Apr






Lately, it seems that new ideas for stories crash into my head on a daily basis. Each one new and different. Some with characters I know and some completely new. I scribble down the idea and sometimes fragments of scenes or dialog. Then, just when I start to feel comfortable with a new idea. a different one pops into my head. The process begins again. Never do I have time to complete the story. They just keep coming like waves in the ocean. It frightens me that I do not have time to write them all. Even if I was a fast typist, I doubt I could get them all finished. I keep the notes safe for some future date because, what frightens me more is when the ideas stop coming.

    I, too, have more ideas than time. I love going back through my ideas file. Sometimes I’m like, “What was I thinking?!” but other times I think, “Wow, that is a great idea! I look forward to writing that story someday.”

      The hard part is deciding which great idea to work on next! Nice to hear from you again.

    Sounds good. It’s always exciting when ideas flood in. All grist to the writing mill!

    Do you ever write a note down and then read it later and have no idea what it means? Here is one from the “notes” dealie on my phone, “What do you mean we can’t use that for the bassinet?” I wrote it down on March 14th and have NO idea what it means. It is a little creepy.

      On occasion this does happen. But the only way yours would be creepy is if you were looking at an antique corn busker. 😳
