The process of writing #amwriting #writing

This wonderful quote really captures the essence and process of writing for me.

I love that I don’t know exactly where the story will take me when I start.

I love that ideas just pop up as I am writing, and also when I am not.

I love that some ideas are so good you just want to jump up and down, and you wonder, where did that idea come from?

Ideas don’t arrive in a vacuum though. We feed and nurture them in our subconscious mind by reading other books, reading articles, and reading and thinking about what we have already written in our current work in progress.

So, if we want our ideas to flourish, we need to take the time and the care to provide the perfect environment for them to thrive in.

Doing this is really simple, we just need to Read, Read, Read!

  1. I agree! I know that the “experts” recommend writers read a ton of the genre they want to write and while I don’t think that’s bad advice, I also think writers should have a diverse reading list that includes books outside of what they want to write. You might be surprised to read this but I’ve gotten some nifty ideas for my NA novel from reading technical manuals.
