The other day I was going through a notebook with some writing stuff in it. I came across a page that was over half filled with words. It was an idea for a story that I wrote down sometime within the last year.
But I didn’t recognize it. I read the page and nothing clicked in my head. I didn’t remember anything–not one word, about this story idea I had.
Which is unusual. I’ve had many ideas and granted, I haven’t looked back at EVERY page with every idea I’ve ever had, but most of the time when I go back, my notes will spark a little recognition. And I’ll go, Oh yeah, I’ll have to go back to that some day.
Not this time though.
So I don’t know if I had this idea from a dream or where it came from. I really have no clue. I’m wondering if I was watching a horror movie or something when I got the idea, because that’s what I labelled it as: horror. Although my notes don’t really reflect that it’s a horror. It’s kind of funny.
Has this ever happened to you? Where you’ve written done a bunch of notes for a story idea, but when you’ve gone back, you don’t recognize/remember it?
