Turns out, I'm having a devil of a time getting this silly Shiny New Idea to leave me alone for even short periods of time.
I dream about it.
No really, as in, I can't stop thinking about it. This idea is going to drive me insane. And let's be clear, I work a job where I really have to think and I have to think for long stretches of a time. But the second I stand up to go to the bathroom, I'm in another world.
Sometimes the real world is just frustrating in that whole I need a job to pay the bills thing.
How about you? Do you cave to your new ideas, or do you beat them back with a stick? Are they easy to fend off, or are they intrusive, causing you to have somewhat obsessive behaviors around them--wait, that's a silly question, if you wrote a novel about it, you were obsessed. As we all know writing a novel is an act of madness.
right, and in the mean time, enjoy this picture of an iris from my mother's yard:
