When Ideas Breed Like Rabbits

While some people here are experiencing writer's block, I'm experiencing an inundation of ideas. They come so quickly it requires reasonable amounts of energy to keep up with them.

  • Do you ever experience this?
  • How do you keep up when it happens?

I try to dictate them sometimes, but then I need a pocket of time where there are no ideas to focus on the recordings. I wonder what is causing this bubble. It might be healthier living and better sleep. Creativity may breed creativity. I also experience a desire to make all the ideas happen at once (only because new ones will soon take their place) as the more experiments are done, the more I can find out what works.

What do you do when you have idea overload?

Oh, yeah. Sometimes.

I don't know if I can call them ideas but these thoughts, they are like bubbles floating in my mind. They come and go so quick that I cannot remember them and they just fuse into each other and make no sense sometimes. I want to jot them down because I fear I won't remember them and some of them are just so awesome but alas, I end up forgetting. My memory sucks, it remembers the most trivial of things!

Try free writing, stream-of-consciousness. I do this all the time. I actually use pencils and a paper notebook because the physical act of writing it by hand seems to help crystalize my thinking. I can purge the manic thoughts and hear the music underneath.

I write them down and look at them a week later. Most of the time these ideas are just unworkable when reviewed a second time but a few do make it. I then tell my ideas to people that can actually executed them lol.
I need to start writing stuff down.
