31 questions | march 25.

March 25
Where & when do you get your best ideas?

Mostly in the shower and while driving, at no particular time. You know, places where I can never write shit down and by the time I’ve got a pen and paper, I’ve forgotten everything.

I have written on the shower wall with my finger before. But it gets washed away before I can remember not to forget. I’ve also repeated thoughts on a loop in my head [or even sometimes aloud] while showering or driving until I can write down my thoughts. But as soon as I stop showering or driving, the voice in my head gets distracted, the loop breaks, and I immediately forget.

When not showering or driving, my mind tends to favor the night—late, like, between midnight and sunrise—while lying in bed [as I am not usually showering or driving at this time]. At least in this case, I can write things down. Unfortunately, the next day, I’ve lost motivation to act on any of those brilliant ideas.

p.s. — Shameless self-promotion follows:

brilliant ideas

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  1. I have jumbles of words dotted about all over the place. On paper, on my phone, on my laptop, in books. One day, perhaps. One day!
