I love Sunday Scribblings! Laini and Megg always come up with the best prompts.

Interesting about your water theory. One of the things that I do when I'm stuck is fill the tub with fragrant bubbles, make the water as hot as I can stand it, and soak. It works!


Hi Patry! It is so wonderful of you to drop by with all of the busy-ness you are experiencing these days!

Thanks for your idea. I think I'll give that a try tomorrow. :)

You may have something there. Sometimes I'll take a shower for no other reason than that it helps me think. I get some of my best brainstorming done there.

Juliet Wilson

Interesting post. I often have great ideas in the shower but can't take notes in there. I don't have a bath, but the idea of a waterproof notebook by the tub sounds great, don't think it would work in a shower though...


I just love this post. Oooh come on KG, tell us now... you MUST be Marry Poppins! I'm sure, please tell us, pleaaaaase! ; )

Really, this short-circuit into everyday life makes your day (and ours now) an extra-ordinary day, full of simple observations leading to great ideas.

"Playing with ideas and letting them float around in my head is at the heart of discovery." - WOW!

"Playing with ideas and letting them float around the internet is at the heart of sharing discovery" - Thank you.


Hi Zero Boss! Very interesting that this works for you, too. And you write A LOT, about so many divergent things.

Thank you for visiting one of your delurkers. :)


Hi Juliet! A commenter on another post had a great idea (which I didn't understand at the time, but your comment made me think of it): SHOWER CRAYONS! I found some at the toy store. You can write on the shower walls, and it washes right off.

Actually, my grout is a bit more colorful now, so if you want pristine grout, write your shower brainstorms only on the tiles. Then you can transcribe onto paper after bathing/brainstorming.

Thank you for visiting! It's always wonderful to "meet" a new blogger.:)


Hello Mindblob! Thank you for appreciating the simple zen wisdom I find in life. And you are not the first one to accuse me of being Mary Poppins. Now, where did I put that umbrella? ;)

Your interesting post on the future of work is still floating around here, too. I've got a bit more processing, and then I'll be over for a comment.

Some of my best ideas seem to come to me in the shower ... don't know if that means that I work better naked or if it is to do with water (ha ha). I dare say that it wouldn't be appreciated in the office!

But there is something contemplative and quiet about the running water that does seem to link instinctively with water.


Haha, I like your writing, today I've posted my first Sunday Scribbling too! I think it has more to do with relaxing and the auto pilot (check my post today) than water, but if you dig water I recommend you to sit by the ocean and write! You'll have a blast!


Gavin — LOL! I would definitely recommend you use only the water-creativity technique for the office. ;)


Hanna — Congratulations on your first Sunday Scribblings! I've been over to check out your post and have left you a comment. Your collages are inspired.

Sitting by the ocean and writing is now at the top of my to-do list. Thanks for the suggestion and for visiting. :)

Hello and welcome!

  • My name is Kristin Gorski. I recently earned my doctorate (EdD) in instructional technology and media. My research focuses on technology and literacies, writing in digital spaces, and how media literacy may support academic literacy (among other incredibly interesting topics). On occasion, I’m also a freelance writer and editor. “Write now is good.” is my personal blog about writing, creativity and inspiration (with healthy doses of technology in relevant places). I started it in blogging's heyday (2006) and still post to it, time permitting.
