An Idea Will Jump Up

"Think about it deeply. Then forget and an idea will jump up in your head."

- Donald Draper, character on series Mad Men.

This quote really speaks to the creative process. It fits right in with my TLCW recipe for writing.

It basically works like this.

T - think of an idea.
L - leave it alone for a while.
C - your brain will keep thinking about how to make it work on a subconscious level.
The idea will then jump into your head and you can W - write.

It works every time.
