I'll be driving in the car and come up with an idea. Thankfully, my iPhone has a voice memo feature. I've used that countless times.
Ideas will pop up when I'm in the middle of a conversation with someone. Then, instead of giving the other person my full attention, I am thinking about the idea and worrying about how soon I can write it down so I don't lose it.
The worst is when my mind keeps me up at night. The only time I have to write is after my daughter goes to sleep. I may get an hour or two of dedicated writing time. Once I go to bed, I can spend hours thinking about what I just wrote and how I want change it, or what I want to write next.
It can cause some real problems. Anyone else experience this? If so, how do you handle it?
