Because my handwriting is atrocious, I rarely hand-write anything, but I had the urge to do so today. So, I was going through a notebook to complete a family tree for a novel outline I'm working on. I flipped to what I thought would be a blank page in the notebook and found several paragraphs of a story synopsis that I had apparently written out at least several months ago. At any rate I read it over, and realized that I'd completely forgotten about this little nugget, and I have now officially added it to my "to write" list.
It just goes to show that it's worth writing everything down when a story idea hits you. You never know if you'll remember it later, and I would have kicked myself if I had let this one slip away.
How about you? Do you write down your story ideas? On what...paper? A Word doc? And how do you do it? List? Paragraphs? Random words? Tell me! :-)
