On My Creative Process

"Anyone can do it if they are willing to sit there for hours, hours, and hours." (2:56) Jon Sarkin

I am forced to sit by disability.

It's not just sitting, though. If so, all disabled would be keen on some given skill. No, it also takes a bit of gumption (grit) and some knowledge of the craft, but I'll go on. This is a topic on it's own. (Grit, drive, is covered in http://thoughtfulveg.blogspot.com/2014/11/the-drive.html)

On to my writing.... My first, and maybe my second draft, is in my head. I write my final draft down. Usually it is in an e-mail to myself.

I copy the e-mail into Blogger. I'll add appropriate media, if necessary. I'll edit, then publish. After I publish, I will check the links to see if they work. I will play the videos.

Once that is all done I can use it. I will make posts on different sites in different topics and refer back to my original essay.

  1. Jon is amazing! He was graceful enough to spend time on the porch with us for a candid interview. :)
