Wouldn’t you know it, it’s October which can be a fun time for many of those enjoying the full swing of Fall (or Spring in the other hemisphere) and the welcoming of Halloweenish festivities. However, just as I was planning to get things back on track with this site and my writing. Life, threw another curve. This one has been harder to bounce back from…but I am trying to do so and hope that things will resume a little closer to normal either before this week is out, or the next. Thanks for your patience, and hope everyone is enjoying the season.

Hello everyone,

It appears that I’ll be holding on to my original theme for a while longer. I don’t think this is a huge deal considering I have some posts in the works that will start rolling out this week 😀

Life continues to be of some interference, but I plan to get back to updating and writing for this site as well as SQ this season (my new laptop helps). Stay tuned!

“Write it down, type it down, speak into your phone, just get it down. Ideas won’t stay in your head forever.”-Me

We like to trust our memories because we think of them as steel traps and a sign of youthfulness. And it’s true that some people are far better at remembering things than others. But it’s good for us as writers or creative persons to put our concepts and ideas into some physical form.

Short term memory only has so much space before it eventually dumps the input to make room for new information. Long term memory is great, but I’m not sure that a spontaneous idea is going to get placed there unless you run it over in your head repeatedly to commit it. Even then, the more you run through it, the more it’s changing, shifting, and parts could end up missing by the time you believe you’re ready to address them. Think of recalling a dream. When you retell it to someone, no matter how vivid it may be in your mind, it’s never a whole recreation. So why would you expect your ideas to remain whole after you let them sit in your mind?

I know, sometimes there just doesn’t seem to be a chance in the hustle and bustle of jobs or simply inopportune times the ideas spring up. Not only does technology make things easier, having traditional standbys work just as well.
