Remembering Story/Article IdeasPosted: January 14, 2016
How do you keep track of the fleeting ideas you have? You know, that idea for a funny story or a witty sentence or the number of that hot guy at Starbucks?
Are you a post-it person? A notebook aficionado? Do you write on your hand only to find illegibly marred ink stains after your night of drinking?
What works for me is sending myself text messages. I perpetually have my phone with me, and I simply stop listening to whoever is talking to me and send myself a text. Rude? Maybe, but they aren’t that interesting anyway.
The only problem I have: When I send myself a text, my phone “dings” and EVERY FRACKIN’ TIME I think “Hey, I wonder who just texted me?”
I need to work on that part.
