Saturday Sidebar: How long does it take for an idea to germinate in your mind before it becomes a published post?

This week’s Saturday Sidebar is a spin on one of the writing prompts from Mama Kat’s Pretty Much World Famous Writer’s Workshop:

“How long does it take for an idea to germinate in your mind before it becomes a published post?”

Alison Lee of Malaysia writes:
“I get ideas for posts very randomly. Some days, I have a ton of ideas and I jot them down quickly, and when I have time, I sit down to just write or flesh them out. They don’t always make it to being published, but at least I get them out of my head! Between my head and my fingers, ideas become posts within 2-3 days.”

Eva Fannon of Washington State, USA writes:

I let an idea sit for a few days and start writing thoughts in a notebook I carry in my bag. Once I have enough to work off of, I schedule about an hour to sit and write a post.
