Olivia Newport Mom and Tag

My mom will always listen to me talk about what I’d like to write about or how some experience or conversation makes me think of a story. And believe me, my brain is on ADD-inducing steroids when it comes to seeing random story ideas everywhere in everything. Often they turn into complete stories in my head that I’ll probably never get to write for publication. One day I said to my mother how all these stories keep piling up in my head. She said,

“You might have to get a bigger head.”

How do I go about doing that? Because I certainly don’t intend to quit thinking up stories!
