the short story

I thought of a short story last night while I did the dishes and it was all whole in my mind but then I worked on math, watched an episode of Twin Peaks, drank a glass of wine, read a little of Henry James and went to sleep and now I haven’t the slightest idea about that story, even though, at the  time, is was complete in my mind.

  1. Hey, I can relate to forgetting story ideas, though mine usually come while dreaming. I wake briefly after the dream, recall this great story, make a mental note to think it through when I’m fully awake, drift back off to sleep only to wake later and not remember any of things I was sure I would not forget.
