It’s chill time or maybe hang with Ticia time. Oooo…I like that. Come and hang out with me for a few minutes. Have coffee (or whatever) with me. All you have to do is grab your copy of Around the Writer’s Block by Rosanne Bane, pour a cuppa something delish, sneak some of your favorite nibbles out of that hidden stash at the back of your desk (yes, we know it’s there), and join me on page 74.
The analogy in this section works quite well. You need to see Saturation as the collection
Okay, so here’s the plan. During your Product Time while in the Incubation stage is…take a walk. Yupper- I said, “take a walk.” Find something that will keep the left brain occupied while the right brain sorts all the info you have collected. According to Rosanne Bane this is the time when it is best to keep both sides of the brain moving. Move your body.
Now all that tumbling and stumbling around in Incubation will eventually lead you to Illumination. It’s the flash in the dark stage. Like lightning, Illumination stage is a quick paced stage. During your Product Time you must pay attention. Let scenes unfold before you.
IDEA: I have done this- I have voice recorded myself explaining the story. I have allowed myself to talk it through with myself. Once I go back and listen, I have found that I answered a few questions I had been battling. More puzzle pieces fell into place.
I love a good puzzle. That would explain why these stages are my favorite.
So, is this helping? Are you figuring out how to battle that wall in your head that won’t let the words out? Let me know. Let’s chat…
But, until then…
Polish your sparkle and just keep twirling.
Find joy. Be joy. Enjoy.
I’m always looking for new friends!
