More From the Writing Process Blog Tour

You can read my contribution to the Writing Process Blog Tour here.

This week, check out responses from the awesome writers I tagged:

Mary Claire Marck

and

Bev Patt

scribe

Neither of these writers is an old man with a beard, but I love a good woodcut.

 

 

 

 

If you are a writer, I hope you get something you can use from these writing process blog posts. If you’re not, I still hope you get something you can use. I apply advice from athletes, chefs, and people in many other fields to my work all the time. What strategies or inspiration from people in other fields do you apply to your own work?

  1. A very organized friend of mine who is an engineer swears by the mantra “You can get a lot done in 15 minutes.” Since I am a perfectionist, I tend to believe I can’t do anything of value (except read) in 15 minutes, and I am trying very hard to adopt her strategy — make a phone call (hate that!), file something, pay a bill, or hey, jot down some notes for my book!

      I have the same problem. I tend to believe I need large chunks of time to work, when really, I can get a lot done in a short time. For a while I tried setting the timer on my phone to force myself to see how I was using my time (procrastinating!). I need to try that again.

  2. One evening, I sat down and did research about how to start running (for exercise.) While I got lots of ideas about how to create content (drawing or writing) consistently, I never started running. 🙂 #priorities.
