The power of words

It's funny how one word or a sentence can inspire. Sometimes when I'm reading, a single word can bring a whole story idea to mind. I always read just before going to sleep, so sometimes it's not the most opportune time to be having a big idea. But you gotta do what you gotta do, after all.

The other night I wrote a whole synopsis off a single sentence I read in whatever I was reading at the time. I had to delay my bedtime to write it. I guess the subconscious is always on the alert. It knows what you're interested in and seeks it out without caring weather it's an appropriate time of day, or where you are, or what you're doing. If you don't write it down as soon as is convenient, it's gone, at least it's gone for me. Age is a lovely thing. It does things to one's memory.

Does this happen to anyone else?

Have a great weekend everyone.
