Scaling the walls of my imagination.
Have you ever found your mind so full of ideas, images and story lines, that trying to sort them out feels almost impossible. I do, sometimes. Every night, when I go to bed, I find my brain fizzing and churning with a chaotic mixture of ideas, so much so that I rarely get a decent night’s sleep
I’m always having to turn the light on and scribble down whatever’s popped into my head, otherwise I’ll forget it. It’s usually worth the effort, but sometimes, in the light of day, a lot of my scribblings turn out to be pure nonsense and totally unusable, even for speculative fiction.
How I wish my brain had a mental filing cabinet, where I could file away my thoughts neatly, to be retrieved at my leisure. No doubt some people have the capacity to do this, but a lot of us have to retain our ideas the hard way.
Never mind. Better to have an overactive imagination, I suppose, than none at all.
