Thoughts Into Words

A successful plot mutation is completed in four steps:

Writing isn’t like assembling a flat-pack bookcase
A flat-pack comes with instructions on how to turn a collection of parts into a bookcase. While it may seem like chaos at first, the outcome is pretty certain—as long as you follow the instructions step by step.

But writing?

Not only do you need to collect the “parts” yourself, you also have to find your own method of assembling those parts into a shiny piece of content. And what’s more, creativity means stepping into the unknown: The outcome may be a little uncertain or completely shrouded in mist.

Writing is laborious:

Writing is thinking; and thinking is tough.
Writing is communication; and communicating with clarity is hard work.
Writing is a creative process; and creativity seems a fickle beast.
Many writing coaches may advise you to follow a specific process—as if an IKEA method for writing exists. But what might work for your writing coach, might not work for you and me. We’re all different.
