Idea Nugget

Lately, I’ve been finding myself developing “*idea nugget” more often than my own writing. It can be a bit frustrating to spend time on them when you know you will never get around to writing them fully. I can’t just ignore them either. That’s the problem. They fester around in my mind until I write them. Once I get them on to paper. They are gone as nothing happened.

I saw this game on the PS4 called Cybarian Time Warrior or something else I can’t remember and it got me thinking of dropping Conan (one of my all-time favorites) in a cyberpunk future. Fucked up mega Blade Runner/Judge Dredd world completely out of control.

*Idea nugget is not unlike an earworm; “a catchy song or tune that runs continually through a person’s mind.” An idea nugget will just hum around inside your mind for days upon days. It will relentlessly keep you awake until you kill it with another idea nugget or manage to write out as much as the nugget allows.
