THE CREATIVE PROCESS WORKSHOP
How do we create? Where do our stories come from? Why do we write? Sometimes the question is: are we even writing what we should be writing?
Our creative process is the core of our writing and the better we consciously understand it, the more effectively we can raise our process of craft into the creation of art. Process is unique to each writer, but there are common traits and ways to uncover it. We have to understand how our minds work, how we create, how we process idea, story and channel them into our writing. A topic rarely covered, but I’ve found it’s the most fundamental thing a writer needs to understand. Process also affects how we relate to the business and the people who we work with.
