Writing things down might seems straineous but it has its advantages because the brain can only do so much.
Writing ideas down for creative people is very essential. Ideas come really fast and go just as fast, if it isn’t written down, it is instantly forgotten. So many ideas have come to mind for a new blog post, I keep forgetting to write it down and then I forget about the post altogether.
Writing things down makes it easier to edit the idea and make it better (ideas are not yet polished), it makes it easier to keep track of your thoughts.
I have always wanted to write a novel, the ideas for this book of mine always comes when I’m doing the smallest things like my chores or eating, I still haven’t gotten around to starting the book yet due to the fact that I don’t write anything down.
I believe one of the reasons why I find it hard to write stuff down is because I kind of live In my head, in my head I have already written the post, in my head the story is coming to life. I guess I always forget the most important thing about writing the ideas down is that it makes them real and easier to build on.
The ideas come so fast, if the materials (portable notepad and a pen/pencil) are within your reach, it makes writing things down easier.
One of those random moments when the idea pops into my head and I make a blog post.
