Mining Vacay Gold

It's vacay season when we share collective thoughts.

How much can I jam in my suitcase?
Should I lie to the calorie tracker on my smartphone?
Do I trust the GPS or will I end up in a lake?

We writers have another subset of "on the road" musings.

If that girl falls off that balcony will that guy catch her?
Were those glowing eyes flying across the road a Chupacabra?
Is this a tasty location for my next MS?

Julie Musil recently shared her method of note-taking to recall the details of a situation here

I prefer to chronicle my vacay observations visually.

A shadow. A shoe. A tree.

Don't move. It will see you.

The face behind the bottom right pane disappeared.

What strategies do you use to cement observations into your writerly brain?
