I have been planning a murder mystery novel for a couple months and just need to get a few more specific details planned and then I’m ready to write.
But I was laying in bed one night just scrolling through YouTube Shorts when I just get an amazing idea (sort of). I decided that I should write the idea down before I forget it. But then I realized that I needed more of a plot to write down, so I started thinking about it and what I came up with made the idea even more amazing.
But the problem is writing the idea down. Let me be more specific, I am perfectly fine writing the idea down in my ideas spot in my notes app. But usually when that happens I end up forgetting about it and never look at it until the next one comes around.
I use the app Milanote for my planning, but I can’t get the upgrade so every time I have a new plot to plan I have to delete the other plot the was being planned there which I can’t do for the novel I’m working on for obvious reasons. But the only way I’ll remember the other plot is if I start planning it but I need my storage for my current work.
I’m desperate to not forget this idea it’s currently two in the morning and I am working hard not to forget the idea. Any feedback on what I should do to preserve the idea would be greatly appreciate
