when an idea strikes i often jot down a single word to capture it. later, when i'm ready to write, the word or phrase jogs my memory and off i go.
except not always.
i just found a scrap of paper with the phrase FAKE GHOST. clearly this was an idea for something. BUT WHAT? what did i want to say about FAKE GHOSTS? and just what is a fake ghost anyway?
i despair. truly.
