Do you have a file or a folder where you put your bits and pieces of writing to save for later? Amazing first lines you thought of, a character sketch, an emotion you want to explore? A lot of times I put something in there and forget about it. I suspect most of them will never get written because if it isn’t shouting down the roof it gets moved to the back of the queue. The loudest idea gets written right?
Every now and again I read through my file. It’s always a surprise. Some things I don’t remember. At all. I would suspect someone else put them in but most people know not to mess with my writing. Some things I wonder why I bothered saving. Some things I get excited about all over again. The only consistent thing is that it’s interesting. Like an outside view of how my mind works.
Not that I want to know how my mind works. It’s kinda scary.
