nothing keeps me up at night
This is a really, really bad way to write, but sometimes when I'm trying to work out a scene in my head, I'll just jot down a few notes, the points I want to hit, instead of actually, you know, sitting down and writing out the damn scene.

I'm currently working through a conversation with Natalia and Jozette, but I have absolutely no idea where it's actually going to fit into the chapter. I think I need to do it, though, even though Jo is kinda overstepping, but I'm trying to give her motivation/explanation for that, so I hope it doesn't seem too awkward.

Anyway. More Sims. (Because kitchen was cleaned yesterday, and I've done two workouts this week!)

That's not a bad way to write. Get it down on paper before you forget. Also, sometimes you need to write out the points like that, then other things come to you while doing so. And, you can always go back and flesh it out after. That's what I do.

I don't guess it's that bad, but when I just jot down, "Have her say ____, her reasoning is _____" then I wonder if I'm going to lose whatever made me think of it, and if it wouldn't be better to sit and actually flesh it out at the moment. The bad part is when I sit down to write, I can't think of anything, so these things always occur to me while I'm working out or showering or something. I need waterproof paper, I get so many ideas in the shower.

I get a lot of good ideas when I'm bathing too, lol. Weird. XD
