Alright, so this is one of those posts where I'm working at something off the top of my head. I had things pop in there during the week, but then forgot them when I get behind a writing device... 

And voila!

Well, just that. Forgetting what I was going to write. 

The old joke comes to mind where I'd forget a subject while talking to someone and go, "Man, I totally forgot!" 

And the other person would go, "It was a lie." 

I like to think, when it comes to writing ideas, that it means whatever I was thinking will be that much better because it needs more time to incubate in my subconscious. 

Sometimes I say, in reference to story ideas, that it wasn't worth it. Perhaps that can be added to my previous paragraph, where it's not worth it yet

I play a game with myself where a great idea pops in my head, makes me all excited, but I can't get to a pad and pen, or anything. So I say to myself that if it stays in my head until later, it was worth it. If my mind holds on to it until later, and maybe even adds to it, then it was meant to be used in a story. 

There are even times when as soon as I think of something, I literally reach for my phone and the thought was gone. But it was such a good though. 

Oh well. 

What do you think? How do you deal with something you forgot because of circumstance, or your mind simply blocked it right after thinking it?
