Today’s installment of the Summer 2012 THIEFTAKER Blog Tour can be found, once again, at the Magical Words blog site. The post is a continuation of my series of essays on writing ideas and what to do with them, and it’s called, “On Creativity and Writing: Making the Most of Ideas, part IV — Blindsides, Gaps, and Spinoffs”
The basic point of the post is the we can’t control the timing of ideas — they come to us when they want to. But we can adopt strategies that allow us to make the most of them, even if we’re in the middle of another project when the shiny new ideas show up.
I hope you enjoy it!
