Hi all – today’s top tip comes from actor, theatre director and author, Dannie Lu Carr.
If something gets your goat in daily life, makes you smile or just feels a bit strange… any thing from a brief disapproving look from a stranger to a huge row with a partner, from a beautiful park to a piece of scrappy old newspaper blowing across a littered street… don’t let it go, record your thoughts, ideas and reactions into your mobile phone. If it has a voice recorder, and most of them have, then use that. Otherwise call yourself and leave a voicemail. Then listen back to it later on and see what develops from it as you write it down. Don’t censor anything, just write. I believe that the majority of strong ideas come from captured moments like this.
