Chatty, isn't it funny how it snows a little snow and when make a snowball and start rolling that snowball look what happens. Smiles believes in you. We do too.
Bathbuddys JJ is such a smart woman. I think we all need a mentor for our project/s. You know...someone who will keep us on the ball.
Jane, I haven't been on here much til now. I wanted to say that I love Bertha and when I come that way in March, You, JJ and I need to get together.

Nancy, don't edit while writing because it kills the creativity. Do a few pages, put them away for a day or two and then, look at them again. When I learned to self-edit, it really stopped me from writing.

I did believe in Chatty before she believed in herself and still do. The best result of the website was to give her confidence and visibility. She took it from there.

As to writing, here's some brain physiology that might be interesting.

We know the functions of various brain areas from autopsies on stroke victims, brain surgery, and more recently from thermographic and other devices that measures living brain activity.

The act of writing is apparently controlled primarily by the midbrain which coordinates most brain functions.

Writing actually involves almost every functional brain area. Ideas are formed in the creative right brain, organized by the logical left brain, edited by the conscience/super ego of the forebrain, and executed by the physical hind brain. All of that is coordinated by the midbrain.

Brain tissue is like muscle. The most used parts become strongest. Because we use the creative right brain less, it is weak and defenseless so it functions best apart from the editing and logical brain which are stronger because they are more often used.

Because the ideas for the first drafts begin in the weak and defenseless creative right brain the first draft should be simply a record of the unedited ideas generated by the imagination. As a piece is being written, the logical left brain orders the creativite ideas and converts them to language. Later the fore brain can take over to further organize the communication of complex ideas by editing.

Maybe regognizing what is happening physiologically and going with it instead of against will help us to tap into all the areas of our brain in order to do our best work.

Just some thoughts.

Jane, We should be that way when the fish start biting. We go every year. Let's set something up when the time gets nearer. I'll bring the old gal along.
