Below is a link to…well I guess you could say it’s a promo or a book trailer for Jonah Lehrer’s book Imagine: How creativity works.
I shared this with my a lot of my writing friends but wanted to share it with Her-Story-Call readers as well. This video give an excellent viewpoint of how creativity breaths, walks, talks, and comes to life.
It really hit home for me, the word choice and the artist drawing made me see my process and appreciate it. My creative process starts with a feeling, a snip it of information and then my over active imaginative brain grabs a hold of that tidbit like a boa constrictor wrapping around it’s prey. Slowly I twist and turn and squeeze as much out of that though as possible, by the end my brain is full of ideas and a direction for the story.
As I’ve expressed before I have a very hard time plotting because I feel like it disrupts my creative mojo.
Where does creativity come from for you? What does your creative process look like?
P.S. Got my rejection letter this week!!! Woohoo – Going Pro!
