I wanted to write about something, but I forgot what that was

Did that ever happen to you? I had an idea for my next discussion - and ideas don't come easily sometimes - but I cannot seem to remember what that was. Maybe I should start writing them down (that's what I used to do when I was regular on that other site). Anyways, not that it was a complete loss. I still managed to publish a discussion about it

That's why when an idea pops into your mind jot it down on your smartphone . Just expound it when you are in the mood . That's how i do my posts .

That would be the right thing to do. Sometimes I tell myself, this idea is so much related to my everyday routine that I can't forget it. But I do lol.

You will recapture it eventually.

It happens to me often at work. I used to have a computer there and would post as soon as I thought of something, but I don't have one there anymore. Now, I might think of something at work, but by the time I get home I have forgotten, and then later I'll remember there was something but can't recall what it was.

I wonder how many good ideas we've wasted like that.

Sometimes ideas just burst like a shooting star and then vanish forever.

And then you waste more time trying to remember the old idea, than to think of a new one

Yeah when I get an idea and I can't post it right away I usually write it down somewhere. =) I hope you think of it soon!

There are 4 novels inside my head, whenever I try writing them I forget but when I am not trying to write them the whole plot is inside my head.

That has happened to me on more than one occasion and it is frustrating.

i bet it often happens after long time sleeping. when you get up ,an amazing idea may be lost in your mind. it is really unlucky for the writers.
