One day I will come up with a cool name for where I get my ideas when someone asks. Not that anyone has of yet, but you know, for down the road.
Feast or Famine. The pendulum swings between the two with no predictability.
They hit you at all the worse times, when you can’t write them down but you’re sure you’ll remember them. They dance just out of reach when you have all the time in the world.
I’m making more of an effort to keep track of the pesky buggers. To have a single journal for them instead of scattered files on the computer. Feast for the times of Famine.
In what is considered to be the origin of the term ‘plot bunny’, the following quote is attributed to John Steinbeck: “Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen.”
I want to learn better cultivation of ideas. To have it be a more reliable tool. Or at least to learn what to do til they come by.
