Hi! I’m an idea. I float around in your head, trying to break free so I can live a life of my own. Unfortunately, I’m a flighty, flitty, and fleeting thought; here today, gone in a second. If you don’t write me down, I can be lost forever.
The best way to catch me is to keep a pad of paper around. I’ve been even known to make my way onto napkins and the back of envelopes. The medium doesn’t matter; it’s the putting down onto something that counts. Once I’m written, I can be expanded and crafted into some wonderful literary pieces.
Give me a try. Write me down and create. Who knows? I may be your next best seller!
