Happy Hump Day!!
I'm so ready for the weekend. Two days of swim lessons and no naps is literally frying my brain. So, I was very surprised when an story idea hit me like a sonic blast. Talk about a light bulb moment. :)
The concept flared while I was driving, naturally, and luckily enough I had my voice recorder. Since I live in the broke-a** state of California, I had to quickly spit out my idea before The Fuzz popped me for driving distracted. LOL It felt awesome to rattle off the details, knowing I would have the raw outline saved in its original framework. *whew*
Of course, now my problem is holding back the urge to focus on THAT story instead of staying on task and finishing my original MS. Isn't it funny how these new story ideas just pop into your noggin without warning and decide to take over. If the idea takes root and hangs out for a few days well, much like visitors and fish, it's gonna start stinkin' up the joint! LOL
So, what do you do when another story idea tries to distract you?
