"A rich leaven of so-called useless information may create the very ferment that triggers a creative breakthrough."
Erwin Di Cyan Ph.D. Creativity:Road to Self-Discovery
Yea for me!
I just handed in my poetry manuscript and my final paper yesterday...now I'm waiting on feedback and trying to get my house back in order after ignoring it for weeks.
I have a lot of work ahead of me this summer. I'm going to try and finance my trip to Ireland this fall, purely on writing. I think I might have to write more hoarding articles because that's been my biggest money maker for content writing. I guess that says a lot about how we hold on to things. Sadly not too many people are interested in poetry or creative writing.
My one article about the Aran Islands is slowly making money, so I think in lieu of my trip to the West coast of Ireland this fall I'll write more travel pieces. While writing content doesn't bring in a lot of money, it's been good practice in finishing projects. If you enjoy any of these articles please feel free to share the links on Twitter, Facebook and the like!
Today try to find useless information. The Internet is full of it. Start a file on your computer or your hard drive. The search for useless information may just spark a question that leads to an article, a short story or a poem.
Now get back to work!
