Most of my thoughts and ideas happen when I don’t have access to my laptop. They happen while I am driving to work or on my way home. They happen when I am in stores shopping. And they happen when I am trying to sleep and my laptop is downstairs charging and I am too tired to get up.
I have many notes written in different notebooks that happen to be near at time of thought, or voice to text on my phone, and even ink on hand.
It is amazing how your story breathes, there isn’t any “closing” the book when it comes to YOUR characters. I have breathed life into them, starting inside my head. So when they want to go somewhere, they let me know. And I dare not let the thought wait….b/c let’s be real—I’ll forget.
AND MY VOICES MUST NOT BE SILENCED! says every crazy person, aka authors.
