Made it out of the blue and the brown … not a drop of brown or blue paint can be found on this latest funky painting.
As far as being out of the blue … ever have ideas come to you out of the blue?
My best ideas for writing usually come to me in the shower. And therein lies the problem, as I am usually far away from my computer or notepad and clearly soaking wet. And then there’s something about stepping over that shower threshold after a shower that sometimes wipes my memory bank clean.
I decided to turn to my trusty Amazon in search of a solution — or of the discovery that a solution didn’t exist and my goldmine of an invention (a waterproof notepad) awaited. Not surprisingly, I found a nifty waterproof notepad and pencil set which sticks onto the shower wall so that I can capture ideas before they are lost. It’s absolutely genius. I love it.
Where to you get your best ideas? Any tricks for remembering them later?
Twice in the last two weeks, I’ve woken from a dream and grabbed my notepad and pen and jotted down the bare bones of the dream knowing that in the morning it will be wiped from my mind the minute I wake up. But I’m definitely going to have to get myself that waterproof notebook! LOL it’s a lot better than writing on the shower screen with a waterproof pen 🙂
It’s an awesome invention indeed. Wish I had thought of it first. 🙂
I get inspiration when I’m not looking for inspiration. The watched pot of inspiration never boils. Good ideas come during activities like taking a shower because it is a non-thinking activity, so the thinking mind and the judging mind (the worst culprit) are turned off and the creative mind is free to come up with ideas.
A waterproof notepad.. genius.. my brain cells have been on vacation lately and have not written anything publish worthy in ages.. hoping a real vacay next month will recharge the creative juices!
Who doesn’t need a waterproof notepad? I live in a house where nerd-dom prevails, so it fits.
Is this one of your paintings? I love it !
In love this! I’m going to have to get myself one 😀
My best moments, strangely enough are when I am at work when I have the least time to actually write let alone think and when I am driving to work with music playing in the background, the worst moments 😦
Car with old tunes is definitely a place I get them too.
Good to know I’m not alone 😀 lol
Lately it’s been coming to me while I exercise. If it is something I really want to remember, I have to repeat it over and over again until I can write it down.
