Good Morning Woes

It’s bedtime and I lay half awake in an attempt to get my mind to slow and shut down so we can go to sleep.  But my mind isn’t ready to do that and sends me what it thinks are some great ideas for my latest writing project.  My conscious says, “That’s a great idea!  Let’s remember that.”  But, alas, when my body wakes in the a.m. it’s the same old sad story of what was that last thought I had before I went to sleep.

Don’t waste your good ideas. Those fleeting thoughts that come to you just as your conscious mind and your creative self relax to rest.  Write them down. After waking far too many times and struggling to remember what it was I thought was such a good idea the night before, I have finally given in to forgetfulness.  I now vow to always keep a pen and paper on the nightstand beside my bed to jot these wonderful thoughts my mind gives me after I quit fighting and just let the thoughts come.  Sigh…

Good morning to all out there in writing land. Make it a good day!
