Last night, in bed, I thought of a word beginning with R and a whole story I could write about the word. This morning I could not recollect the story or even the word. It started with re-. I’m sure of that. Also, it seems that I composed an intelligent essay about the word–in my mind.

All day today I’ve been reviewing possible re- words as possibilities. Remember, regret, result, redundant, resolute, remarkable, reference, review? Ah, review would have been good. As a writer, I’m always concerned about getting reviews of my books on Amazon and Goodreads and wherever reviews can be written. Good, bad, or ugly, reviews are important as a way for readers to learn other people’s descriptions and feelings about the stories and to decide whether they want to read the book.

The word from my nighttime thoughts won’t come to mind. I’ll recollect it one day soon, I’m sure, when it’s too late. I need a notebook with a backlight, sort of like a Kindle or I-Pad, so I can record my late night rambling thoughts before I lose them. Any suggestions?

    Earlier this week I awoke in the middle of the night and found that someone left a comment on my “P” post saying that I was brilliant, funny, one-of-a-kind, and all kinds of other great things and that they couldn’t wait to read more and that they were inviting all of their many friends to follow. This was very thrilling. In the morning I grabbed my phone to read the comment again…nope, just a dream.
