Crafting An Article

DSC_5735by Catherine L. Tully

I’m curious…

When you have an article where you have to be creative…how do you come up with your direction? Are you the type of person who sits back and lets their mind drift until the idea hits you? Or are you someone who needs to do something more concrete, such as brainstorm a list of possibilities?

I’m a drifter. Sometimes I go to the swimming pool and do laps, letting my mind go. Other times I’ll just keep the ideas on simmer in the back of my head and daydream. Fortunately, this works for me. I’ve learned over time that my best work is done when I’m not at my desk.

With writing being such a solitary task, we often don’t know much about the process we each go through to get to that finished piece. So tell me…what’s your path to creating something that you are proud of?

I’d love to know.
