Don't Forget to Focus

Hi, all you writers out there! I know we're busy with the holiday season, but don't let those  good ideas get away. Whether you're writing, reading or just plotting, each step gets us closer to a brand new draft!

I totally love to write so I'm always thinking about it, even while doing chores or shopping, having my hair done or sky-diving . . . (oops! no not really)! The point is--writing is always at the forefront of my thoughts. Yes, that's right, I DO have a one-track mind!

In order to stay focused while I'm away from my laptop, I've developed a strategy to keep from forgetting ideas. If a title or character presents itself, I use anything available to scribble a quick note; a napkin, a newspaper or the back of my electric bill. Haha. Whatever it takes, to keep the idea from vanishing forever, and it would!

So enjoy the holiday season, stay focused, and stay warm:)

 Happy Writing, Friends.

  1. Haha! I have a pile of scrawled notes on scrap paper next to my computer: three receipts, the back of a business card, half a napkin, the edge of the church bulletin...

    Like you said, the idea will vanish if it's not captured on paper. Maybe I will buy a small notebook and keep it in my car/purse. I'll write myself a reminder on the back of this handy scrap of paper. ; )
