Ideas For Writing

Dear Dead Beat,

I keep a notebook hand at all times for jotting down my ideas. Very often these come to me while lying in bed at night. I have to get up and turn on the light to write them down. My husband is not so pleased about this, but I am afraid of losing my ideas if I leave them until the morning.


Dear Anonymous,

Which would you rather: lose your ideas or lose your husband? Okay, okay, it was a rhetorical question.

You know, Dead Beat believes that you go to bed to rest and sleep. That is a necessary part of the writing life too. Jumping in and out of bed writing down ideas harms this part of the writing process. Ideas, quite frankly, are a dime a dozen. Once you get used to creating them you will have more than you can ever write about.

Good husbands don't come so easily.
