At least I've gotten wise enough to scratch down on a digital notepad (vi, you are my only friend) whatever thought it is that I'm turning around in my brain at the moment so that I can return to it at some later time. The problem with that is that somewhere between the time I take the notes and when I sit down to flesh the notes out into a full blown entry the urgency goes out of me. Without the urgency, that potent need to spill my thoughts onto the virtual paper, the entry tends to lose a lot of gusto and comes up as something of a ghost. These "afterthought" entries almost always pale in comparison to the entries I write when my brain is doing a full Thermite burn. Maybe I'm just lazy or something, I'm not sure.
