Inspiration stuck? A creative writing class is what you need
Writing for a writer is the most difficult thing. I know it sounds crazy but an article is something personal that requires a lot of energy.
If you sit down at the computer to write an essay from scratch, you’re asking your brain to: come up with ideas, decide which to include and which to leave out, choose how to arrange them, figure out how to express them, and write complete, correct sentences, all at the same time.
The fact is, these processes are very different and require different ways of thinking. When you come up with ideas, that’s a creative process, and creative thinking is mainly located in the right side of your brain. But when you decide how to arrange ideas logically, that’s a left brain, analytical activity. So you’re asking different parts of your brain to complete different tasks at the same time.
This is one reason you spend so much time staring at the screen and thinking.
On December 2016 I took a creative writing class with the amazing Guia Risari in Sarmede that it is called "the city of illustration". Guia Risari is an italian writer and taught us how much is important the creativite process.
By focusing on each of the steps in the writing process separately, you can work more efficiently. Not only will this make your writing faster and easier, it will also create a better product in the end.
Words are a lens to focus one’s mind.
