Dungeness Crab season starts on November 15th this year! Yet, I have been craving crab
As I sat there enjoying my freshly steamed dungeness crab, (miss T was busy on her iPad next to me, the moment was so relaxing and enjoyable. Let me tell you - the words enjoying and relaxing are hard to come by when you're a mom) ideas for posts, changes, creativeness started flowing like it was raining crabs (I wish).
It then occurred to me that I had been asked the questions of: how do you get your inspiration, ideas for blog posts, subjects to write, turning a keyword into a story, etc., and not once could I answer them with a true inspiration, but now I know - just treat yourself with something you absolutely love and relax, enjoy whatever it is that you love.
I was very happy to have so much ideas. I kept hoping for a moment to grab a pen and piece of paper to write them down. And just when I finally finished with all my chores and ready to write down my amazing ideas, I was stumped. D...it, I forgot all my ideas!
So disappointed and frustrated, I tried pulling on each strand of my hair to restore some brain power, but nothing came back....Oh well. It will just have to wait until the next steamed dungeness crab feast again.
Now a days, I can't remember things on the fly for long periods of time. It is like I suffered from short term memory lost. Also I just can't keep a virtue running list of things that need to be done anymore, besides the obvious. Everything has to be written down, so now I travel with a pen and notebook at all times.
Here are Self Sagacity's Thursday Two Questions #61:
1) Do you suffer from short term memory lost? One minute you thought of something fabulous, and the next minute you can't even remember if you even had that moment?
2) How do you keep track of all your great ideas on the fly? Do you always have things available to jog them down? Do you make up landmarks or symbolize them to help you remember?
