I have discovered that great thoughts do not seem to occur when you want them to during writing but rather at a time when you are the freest from any mode of documentation. At that time, you have to rely on your memory to retain the information. Some writers keep a pad and pen available in the event the spur arises and they can jot it down. The problem is that you are more in tuned to the mood you were in at the time more so than the content of the thought. There are handhelds but don't use driving.
