I love the idea of 'mining your childhood for memories.' What better way to process feelings than with creativity. When I have a Blue Silver moment, I write it in my notes on my phone. But I can definitely be more organized! Great article :)

"I’ve had the most success when I’ve taken 10 or 20 minutes to write out the scene in my head." I used to do this with "wild abandon." A scene would start in my head, and I'd drop everything and get to my keyboard to hash it out while it was still hot. At some point I lost that urgency and now scenes just bang around in my brain for a few days and then fizzle. The result of that is... well... nothing. This post inspired me to try to re-establish my old habit of getting the words down when they appear, before they have a chance to float away. We'll see how it goes!
