What do you do when inspiration strikes right when you're going to bed--when that proverbial light comes on in the darkness? Roll over, tell your brain to shut up, and go on to sleep? or are you afraid you'll forget? Do you jump right out and grab a piece of paper or fire up the computer and get busy?
Last night a new idea for the beginning of my novel I've been working on for a while hit me right at that point of drifting off, and I knew I would not remember the details if I didn't get them down on paper, so I drug myself out of the nice warm bed and grabbed pen and paper and the ideas poured for 4 pages. It pulls the whole novel together and sets the tone I've been looking for. Woo hoo!! I feel like celebrating!
