So, Friday as I got in the car to head home from work, I was slapped in the face with a rush of ideas for my book. Usually I’ll send myself a text message summarizing what I’m thinking if I can’t get to pen and paper, but there was just way too much going on in my head to fit in a couple of texts and it was way too hot in my car to put off driving. I started the car, got the AC going and backed out of my parking space. The ideas wouldn’t stop coming and they were too good to let go of, so I just started talking. It was like I was telling someone all about my story and the world I’ve built and how things work in it, only, there was no one else the car. I talked to myself for twenty minutes straight. I was pretty disappointed that talking to yourself isn’t socially acceptable when I stopped off at the grocery store, but by the time I got home, I was able to get my ideas down. 🙂
Do you guys do anything strange, awkward or quirky that pertains to your writing process or am I alone in this?
