I always tell myself when I have an idea for a story that I’ll remember it, that I don’t have to jot it down.
I read a word that tantalizes me and I think, I won’t/can’t forget such a delicious word… but I do.
I finally began listening more closely to the voices in my head, and now keep them in a small notebook so I can re-read them and remember their magic.
I keep a pad of paper and a pen by my bed and write down dreams that wake me at night. I have a running list of words and phrases I hear or read that open my mind to new ideas and stories.
I keep a journal of big words and pretty pictures so I will never forget again.
“I put a piece of paper under my pillow, and when I could not sleep I wrote in the dark.” Henry David Thoreau
This week’s word is:
What to do:
Using “pen” for inspiration, write 100 Words – 100 exactly – no more, no less. You can either use the word – or any form of the word – as one of your 100, or it can be implied. Include a link in your post back here, and add your story to the Mister Linky list. If you don’t have a blog, you can leave your submission in the comment section, or as a Facebook status post. Remember to keep spreading the love with supportive comments for your fellow Wordsters.
