I Love My Pocket Journal
Yesterday in the comments to Inside Out Thinking: Catching Ideas Coming In and Going Out, Hans at Blogosquare asked a question that was one I had when I first started writing. That made me think that others might have it as well. You see, Han’s problem is that he has too many ideas and his exuberance makes him anxious to use them all as soon as he gets them.
. . . I just donÃ¢â¬â¢t have to sit back and wait for thoughts, actually they are filling me. When I get a thought, . . . I just canÃ¢â¬â¢t wait for that thought to leave me. So I write it down quickly, quickly and post it and there when I see it I feel much relieved.
How in fact to you deal with thoughts when they come in? Should I set myself to some relaxation or things like this? All day long everything I see, read, and hear just give me thoughts and ideas. . . . Right now after reading the post above, I just got that thought and couldnÃ¢â¬â¢t wait to put it down, to get it off my mind. Am I not normal? [edited with Hans permission]
Hans, my friend, I value you and your passion for writing. Turn the page and I’ll answer your question with the seriousness it deserves.
