but what does it mean

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.

I know the feeling there are post-its all over my desk, not to mention scraps of paper with stuff jotted down on them. To try and clarify things I got myself one of those digital voice recorders but I lost the instruction book and wiped several hours of stuff so think I'll stick with post-its and guess work as to what they mean.

yeah, but "fake ghosts" is good even if you forgot what you originally meant. go with it! there are dead people who want to be ghosts (wannabe ghosts), so instead, they fake ghostliness, which pisses of the Ghost Union bosses. Etc. I'm sure you can do the rest.

Maybe you wrote that right after you took some Lortab.

You found one of your notes?

I had a deadline yesterday and missed it for the first time in a year and a half because of (dare I say it) writer's block. That's right, my keyboard is constipated and you're the person I thought of telling first.

Glad to see your good hand is holding up.

I'm so sorry. =( I hate forgetting things that I thought would be awesome. I think Lisa is right, go with it anyway.

Fake Ghosts. I like it. I don't know what you wanted to say about Fake Ghosts either, but I'm interested. It's a start...
