Hitch-hiking Ideas

June 15, 2012

I had a really great idea for this blog post. As I fell asleep last night, I was composing it in my head. Briefly, I thought ‘perhaps I should get up and write it down’

Nah! I’ll totally remember. I’ve been laying here thinking about it for ten or fifteen minutes. Who would forget that?

Can you see where this is going?

I cannot for the life of me remember this idea in the light of day. Something to do with…

I got nothing.

I wish it was the first time. I imagine all these lost ideas hitch-hiking around in the recesses of my brain. Some will get picked up eventually, but some are destined for long, lonely lives of never being remembered.

So, tell me I’m not alone. You’ve forgotten great story ideas, snippets of dialogue, plot fixes and so on. Forgetfulness loves company.

  1. I do this all the time. Often my ideas come before bedtime or on the way to work when I’m in the car. And then I get distracted by road rage and forget all about it. I feel your pain 😉
