Two more posts. I can do two more posts. I’m starting real late today. Lots of writing early in the day, after a later start than expected, then lots of not writing. Now a lot of writing. But filler. My most successful generative phase in MFA was thanks to filler. I’d do a word count and write on and on, stream of consciousness stuff, until I fell asleep, using the micro-naps to break up perspective on something, sometimes repeatedly; then I’d expand it. Worked for plotting, worked for finding a voice. I still remember a number of the ideas I came up. Of course, it only worked that one time.
