Memories are the Achilles’s of writers. The biggest trick it plays on you is to when you have a good idea, you don’t have to write it down immediately.
Let me tell you–don’t listen to that lie.
Write it down.
On a napkin. Text it to yourself. Send yourself an email. But don’t believe the lie that you don’t have to write it down!
Pro-Tip: Use a voice recorder. No muss no fuss. This way you can have a running catalog of your ideas and potential stories.
Preserve the stories. At all costs.
