“you have to go after it with a club.” –Jack London.
Seems lately I’ve been using a feather, at best.
I came across this list from WritetoDone.
Item #26–freewriting–reminded me to revisit The Accidental Genius by Mark Levy. If I had to narrow down my library to ten books, this would be one of them. [Reminder: This is a no-shilling-for-compensation blog. If I like something for my own purposes, I’ll mention it and hope it helps readers.]
My own additions to the list of inspiration sources:
- A work in your field of interest/genre that you think you could substantially improve.
- A previously successful work of your own.
- An addendum to item #8 [Music]: Some writers loop one selection to help them achieve flow. This article might help explain what’s going on.
Okay, so I’m now inspired. Time to find my version of a Jack London club.
