Evolving Creativity and the IWSG

Greetings in November!

This month’s IWSG question asks: How has your creativity evolved since you began writing?

In my previous career, I was a programmer. I dwelled in a company cubicle Monday through Friday, 40-60 hours/week. And often on weekends because that’s when programmers break stuff make system changes. That sort of job, which I held for longer than I choose to reveal, shaped my approach to all work, including writing.

Basically, the approach goes like this: show up. Ideas happen on their own. Work does not. Guess which one of those outcomes is no good without the other.

Parties and umbrella drinks are great on their own. But together, they make a celebration.

Show up for work,

Creativity will happen,

and then, WE CELEBRATE!

Thank you to this month’s IWSG co-hosts.

A-to-Z Challenge: V is for Visit

I am humbled by the talent, skill and plain hard work brought to this month’s challenge. Sure, I had a lousy April but life happens, and I didn’t prep. I appreciate your dropping by to check on my post, but now look to the column on the left.

<– Look to my A-to-Z blogroll.

Graze in lush green fields!

You will not be disappointed.

A-to-Z Challenge: T is for Traveling Haiku

Day 20 of the A-to-Z finds the Fool on a trek to an exotic locale.

To celebrate the journey — and all journeys, really — I’ve composed a haiku:

May the skies be friend-

-ly, and the flight attendants

swift with potent drinks.

See you Tuesday, Blog Follower(s)…

Haiku Humor. Writing Humor. Travelling humor. Traveling Fool on Air Interrobang in a photoshop mashup. How do you like my haiku? Deconstructed Fool from canstock image csp440045 by artist Xochicalco.

A-to-Z Challenge: S is for Sock

April, you have (nearly) defeated me. It has come to this.

I apologize to Leonard Nimoy.

I apologize to hosiery.

I apologize to those of you careless enough to scroll further.

Turn back, I’m begging.

A mock memoir title …

Writing humor. Mock Spock memoir. Apology to Leonard.

You were warned.

 

No socks were harmed in the making of this post. 

I’ll wear the thing. I’m not proud.

Obviously.

A-to-Z Challenge: P is for Wild ImPagination

Page numbers. A simple but necessary prop for every masterpiece of literature.

And the stuff the rest of us write.

Sloppy pagination, or the complete lack of, will sorely peeve your critique partners, or requesting agents, or harried editors.

As to that, I offer another minimal mock memoir title.

Writing, editing, humor. Pagination. Agents. A mock memoir title by CV Grehan. I wrote on the edge of a stack of paper. Took a picture on my cell phone and called it good.
