Why I Write Things Down

Last night as I was going to bed, I had a great idea for a blog post. As I got into bed, I repeated the idea to myself a few times, sure that by doing so I would remember said blog post idea in the morning.

So, can you guess what happened?

No idea what said great idea was. I’ve been sitting here thinking, thinking, thinking and my mind is just blank.

For me, I have to write things down to remember them. If I make a list, I usually don’t have to consult the list again… it’s the act of writing it that helps me remember. I don’t know if this is a writer thing or just my type of learning style, but if I want something to stick, it needs to be written out!
