Do you ever wish they'd (whoever "they" are) would invent a gadget to just capture your thoughts directly to the screen...or paper...or whatever your tool of choice is? I would pay big money for that. I bought a recorder, but that doesn't pan out all that well either. I go all day at work running various scenes through my head, stopping, cutting, redirecting, rerunning...because I'm visual and I don't see words, I see it like a movie. I get all this going on, and then if I ever get the chance to grab a pen, it's like...hmmm. It goes away or falls flat.
Maybe that's my problem--not seeing the words. I'm constantly having to rework what I see, like expressions, body language, movement, into the written form, and it falls flat so I get disgusted with it. You know what I mean? When you watch a scene on TV, and there may be a 3 second flash to someone's face and their expression means EVERYTHING. I have trouble conveying that without it becoming overkill and too much description that later has to be cut and therefore taking the meaning with it.
Anyone else have this problem or have any great magic methods of overcoming it?
