Writing, as I have shared in discussions with many of my friends, helps me think. Through planning and typing words on paper, new ideas come to mind that I had previously not synthesized. Perhaps a scientist could explain why this is the case, or maybe this will remain to be one of the great mysteries behind "creativity." Over the years I have been writing, I have realised that there are a lot of nebulous parts to the creative arts. We all measure quality differently; we all have different standards; we all have diffferent ways of working. Finding how and on what we work best is a great challenge.
