The first rule of inspiration is that the best ideas come to you in the precise moment when you are least equipped to write them down.
How do you make sure you don’t lose those ideas? How do you keep track of them?
My method is pretty simple: I email them to myself. Chances are my phone is nearby and if it’s not, I’m probably too panicked to have a good idea anyway.
I may have a problem.
What about you?
