Blogging mirrors the creative process

Well, here I am again… Trying to be a more conscientious blogger! I had actually started writing some blogs which I never published…. I don’t know why. Here is one short one which I first wrote April 26, 2005:

Blogging Mirrors the Creative Process
Blogging really mirrors the creative process of writing for me. Typically full finished works don’t just spring out my typing fingers. No, it’s trial and error. I write stream of consciousness, and then go back and edit, and out of that comes something really good… maybe… sometimes…

I love the movie Adaptation, because it captures that inner dialogue so well, that not only writers but many (all?) creative people go through. What I like about blogging is it allows this inner dialogue to spill out on pages.
