I’m trying to build this more into my creative process. Forgetting, that is.

I only write down ideas that come to me in bed at night very rarely these days. The idea is that if my brain can hold on to them until the morning, they must be important and worth remembering. If not, they probably weren’t that good.

This tactic is similar. If you don’t remember the ending for the sentence you wanted to write the night before, chances are, you have a better one in you anyway.
