Writing and Other Crazy Stuff
While this topic will be mostly about writing, it may cover a wide variety of other subjects. Writing doesn't occur in a vacuum, it's related to everything we experience, and so a topic about writing can be about anything and everything.

I’ve been having an insightful shuffle through Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s book Creativity: The Work and Lives of 91 Eminent People. Mihaly is a seminal professor of Psychology and Management, and is the Founding Co-Director of the Quality of Life Research Center at Claremont. He writes:

“I have devoted 30 years of research to how creative people live and work, to make more understandable the mysterious process by which they come up with new ideas and new things. If I had to express in one word what makes their personalities different from others, it’s complexity. They show tendencies of thought and action that in most people are segregated. They contain contradictory extremes; instead of being an individual, each of them is a multitude.”

Pamela D Lloyd's insight:

Wow! This explains so much!

Jack Kerouac Lists 9 Essentials for Writing Spontaneous Prose ... | Writing and Other Crazy Stuff | Scoop.it
Jack Kerouac wants you to turn writing into “free deviation (association) of mind into limitless blow-on-subject seas of thought, swimming in sea of E.
Pamela D Lloyd's insight:

Kerouac's method, which “discourages revision… chastises grammatical correctness, and encourages writerly flexibility,” may not result in publishable work for most of us, but they may be a good way to get past writer's block and get words on the page. And if you decide to revise after all, that can be your secret.
