The proof copy of the paperback should be here tomorrow. I’ll be able to just give the book a final pass and make sure everything looks good. I don’t think there will be any problems with it, but it’s always good to make a final pass.
Due to Poisonous Revenge being dedicated to my grandson’s, I chose to release the book on my youngest grandson’s birthday. He’ll be officially two years old.
During this time I have dug into writing once more, but it has been slowly moving. I have to admit that a great deal of the slow movement is due to the fact that I spend way too much time in my own thoughts.
There is a quote by Ray Bradbury that I read the other day, ‘Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It’s self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can’t try to do things. You simply must do things.’
I thought this was a great quote. Rather he actually said it or not I’m not sure, but there is a lot of truth in such a thing. Like I’ve stated before, the more I’m in my head when it comes to my creativity, the worse it turns out. I have to stop overthinking things and simply create.
While this is a technique that I just haven’t learned, it is one that I need. Do you find it difficult to take thinking out of creativity? How do you overcome it?
Until next time, remember to L.O.L. (Live it, Own it, Love it) or it isn’t worth doing.
