    Default thinking faster than I can write

    At least I am fast at something....

    I am working on a story, that develops faster than I can write it...
    I should use speech recognition, but I am also not ready to read out loud - so to speak - what I am committing.

    Any pointers? Besides copious amounts of adult beverages to weaken inhibitions....

    Talk into a tape recorder instead of speech recognition.

    Jot down the ideas.

    Outline.

    then I still have to talk out loud....I am not quiet there yet....

    and you should hear me with my speech recognition! I think I am adapting a Brit accent when I do that...

    I do better hand-writing when my mind is moving that quickly, I have my own version of shorthand that I used all through high school and college and it moves as quickly as my mind... Typing is just too one-dimensional and typos just feel wrong, can't draw arrows and my little spell-check symbols, ect...

    Three subject college-ruled spiral notebook and a good pen, cup of coffee or glass of wine on the side, quiet house. Perfect storm.

    I keep a recording device with me and just mumble out loud. I write "out loud" anyways, even if it's very, very quiet. I do my best writing while I'm driving; I then do my own transcription and editing once I get home. It took me a while to get used to, but it's made a huge difference!
    Nine out of ten times, you'll get it wrong...but it's that tenth time that you get it right that makes all the difference.
