Write down you ideas/The notebook

Hey guys!
Nothing much has happened these past days, I'm starting to feel a little better but I don't wanna jinx it.

One thing I'm struggling with when I write is that I have so many ideas that might not fit into the story. Although your inspired state is awesome, it can ruin your story if you don't keep track of where you're going.
Obviously, not all ideas are harmful to your story, in fact, it can be a great tool to find new inspiration and maybe see if your story can evolve in another direction than you might think. But if you already had a story in mind and you've written down your synopsis and started with your timeline, a new idea can ruin everything.
I noticed that my story was going down the drain because I always found more and more things that I wanted to add, exciting things, things with strong feelings, and things that might not fit in with my original idea that I had already worked so hard with.

I decided to do the only thing I could think of to try and focus, by releasing the ideas that came to me. I took a notebook (the one in the picture is my favorite notebook, it has pink pages and everything just feels so easy when I sit down with it. I've written before that write paper can be pretty hard to write on if you're like me and think that the empty page is mocking you), and this notebook I have next to me whenever I write. If I come up with a new idea that I think is great but might not fit into the story I'm currently writing, I write it on an empty page in the notebook. Once it's out there, I can let it go and focus on my current project.

This is also a good idea if you're struggling to fall asleep at night because your ideas and thoughts are bugging you; keep a notebook next to your bed, and when you come up with something that you just can't get out of your head, whether it's an idea or just a thought like I have to call my dentist tomorrow, write it down and then it's out of your head. You know that you've saved it, and you can move on.

Right now I'm sitting here, with my notebook, trying to make sense of the stuff  that doesn't fit into my story and thinking this is a shitload of projects, what the frick am I doing with my life. I would love to become a best selling author with a hecking big collection of books under my belt, and maybe this is the way to go, or maybe I won't be anything more than a pathetic dreamer the rest of my life, and maybe just one of these ideas might actually turn into something. But for now, having this idea book and trying to calm my crazy head is the best I can do.

So, that's a tip for the new year and I hope it works for you too.

In other news: I used to try out a diet consisting of drinking apple cider vinegar before every meal, and if you know what it is, you probably know that it smells like old, sticky, empty beer cans. It tastes even worse. I stop using that method of diet because it affected not only my breath but also my will to live and eat ever again. So last night I tricked my brother into tasting it and it was glorious. He's the type that likes to show off how great and strong he is, and there's nothing wrong with being a daredevil, so whenever he tries something that he doesn't like he just plays it off like pff, that's nothing, I bet I can eat more of this than you can. But last night, he went this is gross, I'm gonna throw up and nothing that tastes or smells like this should ever be consumed. Then he whined about it the whole night. Amazing.

Now I'm gonna return to American Horror Story: Roanoke and I hope you guys have a great day!
Love you guys
Love you mom
