I liken writing a book to preparing a gourmet meal.  The pacing must be there, different dishes/events must be served on time, the lighting and atmosphere (or the word choice and phrasing) must be given careful attention—all so that the audience can be swept away, sated…

And left wanting to return.

  1. I liken writing a book to acting out a puppet show in my head. Remember when you were a kid and you made all your stuffed animals talk to each other with different voices? (Maybe that was just me?)
    I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one. My kids do it now; my favorite vision of Christmas morning was the dinosaurs in the dollhouse.
    Imagination: it’s what’s for dinner.

    • I think so. A lot of authors don’t work with outlines, and clean up their work in the edit. I think that approach allows creativity room to breathe, while giving you ample time to make it coherent later on.
