At Times Of Inspiration

What do you do when inspiration starts flowing at the most inconvenient hour of the day? Are you ready for it?

I don’t know about you but I tend to get the best ideas while I’m doing the dishes 🙄 or when I’m walking the dogs. These are times, of course, when I’m not sitting at the computer to write.

A few years ago I was naive enough to believe that the thoughts would come back as soon as I sit down and start writing. I’ve learned my lesson the hard way. Not only did I miss to write down my ideas immediately but I also didn’t write them by hand. About fifteen years back I’ve had a small collection of short stories on my laptop which quit working from one moment to another without a single word being saved to a memory device before 😯

One of my best tools are a plain notebook and a pencil and a small bag to take them along wherever I’m going 😉

When, where and how do you usually get inspired? Do you keep a notebook, perhaps even two or three or more, close by to jot down ideas when they pop into your head?
