What Should a Digital Writing Tool Be? ~ The Atlantic

What Should a Digital Writing Tool Be? ~ The Atlantic | Litteris | Scoop.it

by Robinson Meyer

 

"Editorially, a new piece of writing software which opened to the public last week, proposes its own set of answers to those questions. It was clearly built with a thesis: Designed by veterans of digital publishing, it aims to “make collaborative writing easy.” 

 

"To find out more, I interviewed Editorially’s CEO and co-founder, Mandy Brown. I interviewed her by writing in Editorially itself (meta!) and, during the course of our interview, she asked Editorially’s CTO, David Yee, and another editor who frequently uses the service, Nicole Fenton, to pitch in. All three of them, using Editorially, contributed paragraphs of their own and edited them together — a kind of further statement about how writing should work. The product of that process is below; the bolded words are mine."

The Joy Is In the Struggle of Making: How Writers Get Their Ideas ~ Green Mountains Review

The Joy Is In the Struggle of Making: How Writers Get Their Ideas ~ Green Mountains Review | Litteris | Scoop.it

by Aaron Gilbreath

 

"Writers can backtrack and pinpoint the origin of many essays, poems and stories, the moments where we recognized some shape in the ether as the start of something, a particle to split or terrain to explore. This is the proverbial “aha moment” when something clicks. Yet the whole process remains so mysterious that we often end up speaking in hazy clichés such as “something clicked” and “aha moment,” mapping a piece’s genesis on a vague psycho-geography composed of particles and ether, because the process of discovery is often as ambiguous as our understanding of it.

 

"There is consolation, though. The more you write, the more you learn how to generate ideas. Even if you still depend on happenstance, you develop habits. Whether the places you search are on the streets or in books or the caverns of your mind, you learn to recognize the fertile locations where subjects turn up, in the same way an urban hawk learns where the pigeons roost, and you visit those locations frequently. The writer Barry Lopez summarized this tracking ability when he said something to the effect of (I’m paraphrasing from memory): once you train your eyes to see them, you realize that stories are everywhere. That’s true. But how do you learn to see?"
