Inspiration is a strange mistress. Sometimes the outline idea for a piece of writing will come to me at the most inopportune times. These mini epiphanies are so prevalent to, well, basically everyone. It has its own nomenclature, the veritable ‘Shower Thought’.
As you can imagine, the name comes from the act of taking a shower( duh) but its not exclusive to that task. Speaking from my own own experience its when I have time to let my mind wander, when there is no external stimulation from tv, radio, people, etc, that’s when your mind has time to recover from the barrage of information we all put ourselves through on a daily basis that you actually have time to think for yourself.
Of course typically you have nothing with you to write down these million dollar ideas and real life soon creeps back into view and these thoughts and ideas slip back into the ether from whence they came, like some cheap b-movie swamp monster, never to appear again ….until you’re alone, naked on a desert island without a pen or laptop and the cycle then starts again.
This blog was thought up whilst Top Gear was on the TV and Mystery Science Theatre was sharing the screen with this blog, so absolutely no inspiration or thought was used what so ever, but hey, I’m writing again and that can only be a good thing.
