Thoughts on process

I’m not much of a planner –  but I need to be.  Why because my ideas fizzle out and when it gets hard I lose interest and want to do something else.

I’m still getting used to ways I can plan stories but the prep work is kind of daunting and I worry that I won’t be able to come up with something that anyone else would care to read.  There is a musical called Sunday in the Park with George which is about the artist George Seurat and his process.  There is a song called Move On which basically describes what everyone who is trying to be creative is trying to achieve.  I like to listen to it when I need a bit of inspiration.

The Video is of Mandy Patankin and Bernadette Peters singing at a Sondheim birthday celebration.

So lets go write something new and find some interesting pieces.

2014 my year of writing

Lets face it, the only way to get things written is to write. This last year I have not gotten enough done and this needs to change.  So this year I’m going to have a go at writing more.

January is going to be my idea generating month this means generating a shedload of ideas to develop over the year.

I’m also going to blog here more regularly to keep self motivated.

I shall be mind mapping, free writing and hopefully explaining a little more about it as I go along mainly this year is about producing writing I am proud of.
