Are you often surprised when ideas seem to come out of nowhere?
I have been learning to embrace my creativity. And while doing so, it means that I have to be ready. Ideas seem to hit me at the oddest times. It usually doesn’t happen when I am sitting down and waiting for it to happen.
It happens in the shower, or while reading a book, or while working out. Or, it may hit me in the middle of my day. Since I typically can’t stop what I am doing and write at that time, I make sure to have a notebook with me, or put the idea into Evernote. I need to capture it, or I will forget it.
When I have time, I will go back to those ideas and start writing about them. Sometimes, I need to think about an idea for a while first. Other times, I need to write it out as soon as I can. This has been a continual learning process for me.
