Writing

Too familiar

Does this sound familiar? You awake with a killer idea in your head, jump out of bed and head to the desk to write what surely is a great story, only to get distracted (and thus derailed) when you spot something else that really needs doing first, which leads to another, then another.

My Dad on his blog just posted his experience with this memory challenge.

I’m happy to report his muse’s machinations aren’t reserved solely for the octogenarian set: this has happened to me more times than I’m willing to admit. Signs of an over-active mind? Early alzheimers? Over-living? Too much caffeine and too little chocolate?

Whatever it is, it’s a most excellent opportunity to practice present mindedness…assuming one remembers that before the coffee pot beckons…and the trash…and that intriguing newspaper headline…
