Remember, “writing” doesn’t only happen when you’re sitting at your computer. I’m a big believer in daydreaming. I spend a lot of my time doing it. Just thinking. I’ll be lying on the couch, and my daughter will ask me, “What are you doing?” And I’ll say, “I’m writing.” I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve pulled my car over to the curb so that I could email myself a note for a book or an article. Some of my best story ideas have come when I’m taking pause, letting the events of my day process in my constantly-on-overdrive brain. I would even venture to say that I probably come up with some of my best ideas away from the computer, which is why I have pads of paper on my nightstand, in my car and in my shower, the Evernote app installed on my phone and understanding family members who know that when my eyes begin to glaze over during a conversation that someone should hand me a pen.
