Sparks Of Genius Called Shower Writing

So on Tuesday I had mentioned I was had finished a scene and chapter finally, but that I couldn’t remember where I had wanted the next chapter to go. Mostly because idiot me didn’t write it down ten minutes before I went to bed.

Well, my spark of genius must have returned because I remembered where I wanted that next chapter to go yesterday.

While I was in the shower oddly enough.

Maybe not oddly though. I seem to get ideas a lot when I’m in the shower, or I actually start writing a scene in my head when I’m in there. I call it shower writing, and hoping I don’t forget by the time I get out of the shower what I had just written in my head.

Forget singing in the shower, I play out scenes in my head while I’m in the shower.

Which can be kind of odd when I suddenly burst out laughing at something I thought of and someone hears me from outside the bathroom door.

Oh well. What can you do sometimes?

So now that I remember where I wanted the chapter to go (minus a few details I need to work out, which will probably just fall in place when I start writing it) I can get back to work on it. However, I work the next three days in a row so I don’t think I’ll be doing much. At least I get three days off after that though!

And I did write down where I wanted this chapter to go so I don’t forget, again.

Sometimes I actually do learn from my mistakes and idiocy. Sometimes.

Remember me saying on Tuesday I also wanted to keep up with the 1k-A-Day Challenge?

Yeah… About that…

I may have, sort of, kind of already fallen behind…

I’m not even sure what happened. I had two days off since then but I just sort of forgot? Okay, wrong wording. I think it was that I was relaxing more than I should have been and got distracted by the internet. Facebook is a major time suck. So is Wattpad. It’s Facebook more for me though. I can multi task with Wattpad, not with Facebook. It seems like it should be the other way around but it’s not for me.

Either way, I have a couple hours before work and while I have to eat ready, and eat something yet, I might have some time to squeeze in some words. Or at least get some other things out of the way. Then when I get home tonight I can get working on the next chapter.

Those are the plans. Now let’s see if I stick to them.
