Last night I finished writing the last chapter of my WordPress book (huzzah! confetti!) and went promptly to bed, being rather worn out.
Not ten minutes later, my brain coughed up a scene and a plot complication for the mystery novel I put on the back burner several months ago.
Dear voices in my head,
I appreciate your enthusiasm, and I most heartily sympathize with your desire to get back to producing fiction as quickly as possible. However, allow me to remind you that we have just written a rather lengthy nonfiction tome, and will be dealing with revision requests for some weeks to come. If you could please knock it off for a week or so to allow us a little rest, that’d be great.
Even a day or two would be most welcome.
I mean, come ON.
I didn’t get to sleep until 4 a.m.
Wow. Your voices are far more masochistic than mine. Mind just constantly tell me more and different things I should do and never give me time to do them…
Wait I guess thats similar…

So, did you write down what your brain was telling you? Do you save those mystery ideas?
