Writing

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.
