Wow I have been doing this for quite some time but hard is when I don't have the TOOLs available to ME!

like when driving, or In the pool thanks for the share though.



Very helpful information! I think this will keep me better organized with my inspiration.

Thank you!


Awesome tips! I knew about them, but it's always great to be reminded. :)

This is precisely why I must have a smart phone with an app that does voice recording. Just about everything we have on the website has come from an idea I had while doing something else that I dictated and later had transcribed. I agree that you must capture the moment as it happens. The collective unconscious is always at work and if you don't write it down and get going on it, someone else will!

Jim Randel

@Straightalk Agreed! For Driving and/or pool you can try a voice recorder or phone app as Heather mentioned! (assuming you have something dry to hit the record button with!)

@Janice @MelanikaBa Thank you so much for reading and for your comments! Stayed tuned! We have many more posts to come! :)
