Sometimes when I sit down for my writing time, it’s an amazing thing. A couple cups of coffee and an hour later I’ve cranked out over 1,000 words and I’m deliriously excited. Other times, the cursor just blinks blankly at me, mocking me for my lack of inspiration.
I wouldn’t be the first person to notice that great ideas come in the shower. I’ve noticed they also come while driving, grocery shopping, or even making a sandwich. I just wish I could get the words to flow as well during writing time as they do during anything else time. For instance, when I’m making lunch, the little obnoxious narrator in my head will say something along the lines of, “She stacked the lunch meat atop the smattering of mayonnaise in a delicious architecture.” The narrator jumps ship when I sit down at my computer, and when my character needs to have lunch, “She makes a sandwich.” Great.
Where’s your favorite place to have great thoughts?
