Writing while driving

Today I went to see Dad. It's about a forty-minute drive, and while I was tooling down the interstate, I suddenly figured out what I wanted my next Ellen Fisher book to be about, who the main characters were, what their conflicts were, and how this book tied into two of my others.

It's amazing how these things always come to me when I am away from the computer!


  1. I always carry pen/paper in my purse for drive time inspirations! Sometimes I even pull off the road to write down my crazy notions, or have a kid write it for me.

  2. I have this happen all the time. Never have a way to write it down so I have to make myself keep thinking about that, and that alone, until I get someplace that I can put the ideas on paper/computer screen. I've lost too many good ideas and don't want it to happen again.
