IWSG - Creative Progress

I'm a day late on this (where the hell did February go?!)...

For a brief snip of time I was finished editing (now I'm editing three different projects O_o) and started a new project. It's one that I'll be forced to dig deep for and will be my biggest challenge (so far) and I'm pretty excited about that - freaked out scared - but mostly excited.

Over time, and 4 + novels, I've developed my own creative process. For inspiration I need visuals, the words of others, music, sometimes candles, and always a warm mug of something yummy at my side.

Here are some before and after shots of my creative process/progress:




It's my "cork board of happiness" or "the board with creepy pictures and weird things", as my daughter apparently sees it.

What's your creative process? Is it different for each project?

  1. Your boards are so much prettier than mine! Mine are entirely flashcards in neat little rows, broken up into Acts... sometimes I'll stick a picture or two on, but I mostly use Pinterest for visuals. Makes me feel I need to jazz up my corner!

    1. Ha! Well, it's a bit of a time suck, but makes me happy ;-)

    2. Oh and yeah, nothing real neat/organized about mine. The scrappier, the better!

  2. This is inspiring just to look at! I can't wait to get my writing space back and do more of this.

  3. I'm getting ready to change my board over to reflect my new WIP. It's so much fun! I really like the pic of that girl in the first one, w/her dark hair blowing.
