Writing Tips Revealed - part 3

Last Update: November 03, 2016

CHAOS IN YOUR HEAD

Having an idea in mind, sooner or later you will notice that there is still no overview.

This could very well happen and it means that your idea is not mature yet and it's better to postpone the writing. If your mind is not clear, on paper it will also be confusing, not easy to follow, not something to enjoy.

Of course you have to deal with many different thoughts when you are busy. It may be figments of your imagination. Cool inventions. Motivating conversations. Issues seen on television or encountered on the street. Memories. Knowledge. Science.

Perhaps there is a lack of knowledge that requires you to do more research. Thinking about the big picture, what it's all about? And gradually the thought of not getting any further comes to mind. But this is a misunderstanding. Now it is a matter to hold on, not to give up!

You are dealing with something that is called the 'creative process' which is not bound by rules. Please don't expect any quick solutions, although sometimes they will just come up.

Just keep the chaos a while in your head. More idea's will come up. These thoughts are significant. Some you forget again, but that doesn't matter.

Some thoughts are becoming more clear in your mind. Although it seems that you are not making any progress, you will find yourself with better ideas. There is obviously a difference.

Make a note of this difference, for yourself, to keep spirits up and meanwhile postpone writing.
