I was reminded of a quote the other day by Agatha Christie: The best time to plan a book is while you’re doing dishes.
I have been curious enough to try that. I can really see her point! I usually prefer to plan a book as I am falling asleep, though. I think of my ideas as I am drifting off and sometimes more ideas find me through my dreams. I also love going for walks along the beach to think of ideas and find inspiration. The ocean has the amazing ability to calm me right down. All I have to do is sit there, close my eyes and listen to the waves.
Sometimes I daydream during work and I have to quickly stop myself from getting too involved in the story. And sometimes I will just sit and listen to the rain and let the ideas come.
When do you think of the most ideas or plan your writing the most?
