Writing from the Heart

Writing

Georgia Heard talks about strategies for writer’s block in this short Stenhouse video

On Keeping a Notebook
Writing is an act of faith: faith that what I have to say, how I see the world, are important. I listen. I see. I feel and I record. Keeping the words flowing is an act of faith.
Painters have brushes, paints, a palette, an easel—writers have notebooks. A notebook is an ear, always tuned in, always ready to hear more.

I actually keep several notebooks going at once. For each project I’m writing, I keep a notebook to keep all my notes, thoughts, writing and any research.

[Here is the notebook I kept for Creatures of Earth, Sea and Sky]
