the-creative-process-div-paul-arden-divPat Zietlow Miller talks about her process, or lack there of! Take away – everyone’s process is different. If writing in the morning isn’t working out for you, try writing in the evening.  If being super organized is squashing your creative spirit, be a little more hap-hazard. Go with what works for you 🙂

Really like these story shape visualizations by Kurt Vonnegut. Going to see if I can apply them to books that I’ve read recently.

If you’d like to know more about them, check out Vonnegut speaking about them here.

We’ve all heard the phrase, quality not quantity, and in general I tend to agree. However, I recently read an article that suggested otherwise.

Herbert Lui’s blog post, Why Quantity Should Be Your Priority, makes complete sense to me – the more you do something, the better you become.

So with that in mind, I’ve set myself a challenge:

Every morning for the next four months, before I even brush my teeth, I will write a short story from a given prompt.

I’ve created a separate tab on the blog to share them, so please check in on my progress.
