So here I was trying to come up with ideas for a short story when I couldn’t find a word. My mind screamed ‘THESAURUS’ at me and thank God I listened. Rule 1: ALWAYS BE PREPARED FOR MIND SCREAM MOMENTS. They happen all the time.
Rule two is slightly more obvious. Never be anywhere without a good bit of paper and a pencil or pen. Or an iPhone or some variety of technological wonder, if you’re lucky enough. Ideas, they jump at you from behind bushes and one must always be prepared to do something about them.
