Wander wither thou wouldst …
Mental wandering, for many of us, is not a good thing. Okay, mental wandering is not a good thing for any of us … at certain time. There are times when our minds are needed, front and centre, on the job. And these times seem to be when my mind is most wanting to wander.
Part of my job, as a writer, is to come up with ideas, concepts, situations and scenarios to write about. And quite clearly, a wandering mind is the kind of mind that will find these things.
But will it come home with those things and put them down on paper? Or will it wander until it is tired and come home, having admired many possibilities, but also having forgotten to make note of them, leaving me as bereft of inspiration as I was at the beginning of the trip? Likely the later.
