Overthinking Is The Enemy Of Creatives

Overthinking Is The Enemy Of Creatives

  1. Hi JB,

    Very helpful article. It's especially pertinent to my issues of late. I've been trying to work on not overthinking things, but hey, you try three revisions of 5-6,000 words and see if you're brain doesn't kick into over thinking. lol

    Great read. I needed it this morning. Oh well, back to work. Revision, of course. "Fairy Wars" has gone from 7,000 words to 4093. Gotta chop about another 5oo to make room for a scene.

    Hope you are writing!


  2. Hi Raven,
    I try to eliminate all distractions, and then my mind begins to wonder...oh yeah, what were we talking about overthinking wasn't it, don't have any problems with that. It's keeping what I do think about sorted out and in its proper place.

    Chopping away at a scene that one has written is like cutting the finger off at the tip, but necessary, metaphorically. What worries me is chopping off to much... LOL
