A great post on the creative process and how to begin by the writer, Victoria Blake
I came to writing relatively late in life. I was in my twenties before I even dared articulate to myself that was what my dream was. I sat on my bed looking at a clapped out old electric typewriter on the other side of the room and feeling this huge space between me and it. It seemed impossible. The only thing occupying the space at that time was my longing to be a writer.
But how to begin?
In the end I did three things:
1. I did a writing course taught by Sahera Chohan* and Nigel Watts;
2. I did The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron with my friend, Francesca Howard*;
3. I began to read books on writing and creativity in general.
* See my blog roll for their inspiring blogs.
