Sometimes ideas just pop up at the most inconvenient times.
Writers have had this problem for years, and they have come up with a few solutions.
First and foremost you should always carry a notebook and pen/pencil with you at all times. Some writers however, will use index cards or post-it notes while they are out and about.
If you have a smart phone you can use that to capture an idea, either by text or emailing yourself.
Keep a notebook and pen on your bedside table. Just in case you wake during the night. Though I must warn you, you may not be able to read what you’ve written the next morning.
The reason why you should always have something with you to capture an idea is because you just cannot rely on remembering it later.
And an idea forgotten is an idea lost.
There is also another good reason for capturing all these ideas.
You can use them for when the dreaded writers block turns up, and get over that hump a lot easier.
There is another thing I do to take advantage of when my creativity is flowing.
Quite often I find when I’m drafting a blog another idea will turn up, so I’ll make note of it there and then.
After finishing the blog that I was writing I will immediately draft the other blog idea.
I will draft blogs until I either run out of time or the ideas stop.
This way I will have several blogs ready to post. Having these blogs helps with creativity dry spells, the stress of having to write on those extra busy days, and when something unexpected turns up.
Write your ideas down when they arrive, take advantage when creativity is flowing, and have several bogs ready to post.
Don’t miss an IDEA.
You never know when your MILLION DOLLAR IDEA will show up.
