What do you do when you have several ideas backed up and you can't work on them? The obvious answer would be, write the basic idea down and then get back to it, and I do that. But I hate like hell to find myself thinking up whole scenes and good descriptions, because whatever I come up with a few days later never seems to be as good as when it's fresh. Anyone know what I mean?
Anyway, what do you actually do about it when you have pressing work that needs to come first? Do you still put it off to get the ideas down, or just pray it's all still there when you are able to come back to it?
