Sometimes things don't go as planned - in a good way

Today was my day for research, writing articles and letters and working on assignments.
Instead, I wrote a short story.
I've had this idea knocking around in my head for the last few days, but I couldn't think of how to frame it. I was standing in the kitchen at lunch time, trying to warm myself at the aga, when suddenly the story popped into my head fully formed. I rushed to the laptop and wrote it straight through. I thought it was better to get it all written down when it was fresh in my head rather than writing notes and coming back to it another time. I don't know whether it is any good or not, I haven't read back through it, but from a writing point of view I am happy. So while I didn't accomplish what I set out to do today, something else good came along and I'm happy with this unplanned detour.
