Slip Sliding Away


I had it.  Dammit!  I did!  I had the Perfect line!

I’ve been playing around with an idea for a poem.  It may still happen.  I’ve got a rough draft.

I was sitting outside with my little dog while he did his business and thought of the PERFECT line for this poem.   I thought, “Oh, I’ve got to go inside and write this down RIGHT NOW.”  So I quickly go back into the house.

Buy the time I get in the house, sit down and open up the laptop, its gone.  It just slipped away!  Arrrrrgh!!  I’ve got just a whisp, a hint, of what it was and I wrote that down, but it’s not the ONE.

SO frustrating!

Do you have things like this happen when you write?  What do you do to solve it?
