A question for my fellow creative types:
Have you ever been in conversation with someone, or listened to someone else's conversation, and heard the person say something that gives you an idea for whatever you're working on? Maybe it's a line that a character would say, or maybe it's a perfect description of something you could incorporate into the story. But whatever it is, it lines up perfectly with what's in your head.
And you don't want to be rude or creepy and write it down right away. Especially not in front of them.
So you make a mental note to make a physical note about it later.
And you forget it completely. (Okay, maybe that's just me. But if I'm not alone, please let me know!)
That's where I am right now. I was in a conversation with someone, and she described something so perfectly that I just had to write it down. Except I didn't, and I lost it. Now I'm desperately trying to jog my memory. Hmm... maybe something having to do with shoes? Or clothes? I can't remember.
Can anyone else relate? Anyone have any tips for forgetful people? What was something interesting you've heard lately?
