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.

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.
