Oh Agatha, so true. And as a mom, also, so necessary. ;)

P.S. Thanks for the compliments on my hair! :) I'm always changing it...

That would mean I'd have to do the dishes. Don't tell my kids that.

Ahh one of my favorite quotes! And so true! I bet I get a good 85% of my ideas when doing the dishes. Something about the warm water and mindlessness of the task :)

T. Anne said...

Or loading the dishwasher. ;) I agree!

Dominique said...

That's probably true. Think about the book whenever you can. Me, I've always planned as I was about to fall asleep.

Eric said...

Nah, I'll stick to thinking about it while I'm on a long motorcycle ride :)

No dishes for me!

Love it!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

That's exactly what I do. I hate how the dishwasher washes the glasses, so I do them by hand. Which is boring.

I also plan my novels while running. :D

*gasp* Windy, that is so true! Agatha really knew what she was talking about!

Or in the tub, shower, while scrubbing the toilet or driving. Driving really does it for me.

I have been caught taking too long in the shower, folding a towel more than once, or taking forever to sweep a floor. Writing is such a mental exercise. Great quote!
