I drive all week-long listening to the radio coming up with ideas on subjects I want to write about. I get fired up about things on the radio and start a mental outline on how the thing will go. I convince myself that I have an insightful outlook, something to say, a unique point of view, an opinion that will blast the whole debate, what ever it may be, wide open. Yet when I get to a place in the day when I can actually get the thoughts recorded, my musings have gone away!
Some would say, “Silly rabbit, take notes!” MMM note taking, one of the many classes I failed during my botched attempt at schooling. “it is so easy, just write the pertinent facts and use them as a guide for the whatever you are doing.” How does one know what a “pertinent fact” is. More importantly though, it is hard to write coherently while driving at 60 mph!
Does any one have a suggestion?
