Writing Competition Entry

I have great ideas and I can imagine them in my head. I am even good at putting pen to paper and making a captivating start to a story.

My problem lies in continuing the plot and seeing it through until the end. Often I get an idea and I struggle to get even a plan onto paper before it vanishes out of my head.

Is it possible the problem is my memory? It is true that now I am 40, some less tactful friends have made comments about early onset dementia.

Perhaps my mind is in chaos? My demanding job can be stressful at times and this does not help.

What I crave is time to unwind and relax prior to a writing session. A quiet place in my head is all I need. A room of one’s own, so to speak.
