You are gonan write some article or something and just in the time you sit by your computer all your thoughts are gone.So you would switch it off and all your thoughts and ideas would come back.Do you write your ideas to some notepad when you got some good ideas and you are not on the computer?

This does happen to me all the time and especially with grocery lists. All week long ideas pop into my head for items to buy at this store or that one and then when we get into the store, I had just better have the list with me! Well, I usually put the items down in my pocket computer (a Palm Zire 72 PDA that I carry everywhere) but not always.

Plenty of ideas come into my head in bed before I go to sleep.Mornings I wake up fresh as a flower forgetting all the points.I stopped worrying about them when I came to know that worrying makes them lost forever.The trick works they come back from their hiding places tired.I catch them and post them.

This happens to me as well. I also have the problem in that I have bad wrists, and my arm aches after ten minutes or so of writing. I do have a journal, but I sometimes forget to have a pen with me as well. And sometimes I get these ideas in my bedroom when it is dark and I cannot get to the computer at time. Sometimes the ideas come to me while I am taking a walk, sometimes when I just wake up, anywhere but in the computer room. Before I broke my wrist, I used to write the ideas in my journal and then copy them in Word. I really should get a laptop.

I have experienced this sort of writer's block before. What I have tended to do it just write whatever comes into my mind - no matter what it is -even if just random words. I may not come up with any ideas straight away, but because I am showing my subconscious mind that I am going to write no matter what, ideas will then start to come to me. :-)

Actually it happens all the time to me. I will sign off and leave the room and get busy with something else, and then I remember what I was supposed to be doing on the computer and have to head back into the office and sign back on. I really should keep me a notebook handy so I can write it all down. Great idea.
