Characters, stahp!

Internet was acting up this morning so not posting in the AM. My brain is on fast forward, I have plotlines and characters and scenes from three different possible books running through my head they are all tangled up and they just won’t stop. The people are walking and talking and not stopping. I have whole first chapter of one story and a large portion of the plot and Christ I just don’t have the time to sit down and write it right now.  I’m afraid I’m going to lose it. I don’t even have time to type out the notes right now.

THIS is what is so damn frustrating about wanting to write. When I get like this, if I sit down and start the story I won’t be able to stop for hours, it will absolutely consume me and I have other things that MUST get done, both tonight and for the rest of the week.

Maybe I can get the notes typed up tomorrow morning if I get up early enough before I have to go to the apartment for cleaning duty.


  1. Darling, you need a recorder. One of those handheld digital recorders!! Seriously. I think it would save you grief. Keep it with you all the time. You can record your thoughts on your way to work. Or even between clients. Keep it by the bed and whisper into it at night when you wake up suddenly with a brilliant idea!

  2. Very good idea. I'm giggling at the thought of waking up in the middle of the night, fumbling around for the recorder, and furiously whispering the weird dream I had because one character in it was super weird and awesome and I have to remember them for a book.
