Lately I’ve been getting a lot of ideas for stories. Too many because I just don’t have the time to write them all.
But some of those ideas just grab me, dig into my ankle with their sharp, tiny teeth and want to drag me away from what I’m currently working on.
But I can’t let that happen. I need to finish what I’m working on now and then turn to something new.
I love having brainstorms. They literally feel like lightning flashing and thunder pounding in my head when some image or quote or message from beyond suddenly clicks and I get an idea that I can get really, really excited about.
But I have to resist the urge to drop what I’m currently working on and go chasing after that bright, new, shiny idea. It’s hard to do, but must be done.
So, what do you do when you get an incredible new idea for something but can’t work on it right then?
