Recording Stuff

About a month or so ago when Tim bought me my new camera he also bought a digital voice recorder and I have recently started useing it a fair bit, why well because I will often think of things for a blog post at night while I am in bed often I will compose a whole post in my head and will do the same thing  while I am in the car driving somewhere also I am currently working on another edition of the family newsletter I write and when I think of something I want to include in the newsletter I will make a recording of what it is because yes those thoughts also come to me when I am driving or getting ready to go to sleep at night.

Why is it that I will have these thoughts at these times is it because I am not concerntraiting on anything and yes I know I should be concertraiting on driving but to be honest I often find myself driving on auto pilot,does anyone else drive on auto pilot you know what I mean you get in your car and head of somewhere and then the next thing is how the hell did I get


  1. Lol, I don't have a license, but if I did I'm sure I would be always on autopilot! Sounds just like something I would do.

    There is some rambling theory about how when you're focused on one thing - your subconscious mind is free to think up other stuff... but obviously I don't know the theory well enough to actually talk about it ;-)

  2. Hi Jo-Anne. That digital voice recorder sounds like a great idea to have around, so that you can get your thoughts down and not forget them. (As I would be sure to do!!). Yes, I know exactly what you mean about driving along on auto pilot, and then finding that, ooops! I should have turned off back there! LOL!!

  3. I usually think of craft ideas when I can't sleep but they never turn out the way I imagine as I end up adding bits as I go along when I actually get around to making it.

  4. I can live on auto-pilot never paying attention or focusing.

  5. My greatest ideas are born through insomnia lol

  6. I carry a notebook with me at all times. I've had far too many instances of great ideas only to have them completely lost by the time I find a piece of paper!


  7. oh yes...happens WAY too much that I ran out of excuses.

    L......Insomnia is not something I have ever had a problem with thankfully.....

    Pearl.......Yes if I do not make a note of an idea I will forget about it so the digital recorder is just great.
