I was talking with a bunch of teenagers and the subject came up about how I keep track of my ideas for stories, or ideas for the story I'm currently working on. When I got home I began to wonder how many other authors have the same type of system I do?

1.) I have a few notebook strategically placed around the house, the biggest right beside my bed.
2.) I have a dry erase board in my office, but that is mainly my writing schedule( or what I wish it was).
3.) I'm working on two series that I'm working on. For these I have a poster board with sectioned by story and any important details listed under the right one.
4.) Whenever I come up with an interesting idea I jot it down, who knows when it might come in handy.

How many of you other authors out there have similar process for recording you random ideas?

HI there,
I even have a sticky note pad and pen in the bathroom!
I try to keep some paper around at all times. Driving or mowing the lawn seems to bring the ideas for some reason, maybe the mind is more relaxed? my hubby suggested a small recorder if something hits me while at a stop light.
hopefully what hits me is an idea and not another car.
