@DaveCullen Heh ... I call it fomulgating -- kinda like fermenting ... Letting ideas cook while thinking about other things #creativenf
Dave Cullen @DaveCullen

My mentor called it composting. But now I'm more at the fear stage.RT @RebeccaSkloot: I call it fomulgating...Letting ideas cook #creativenf

@DaveCullen If I had mine sequenced, I'd spend way too much time analysing it! (I'm a computational biologist.) #creativenf
Jonathan Menon @JonathanMenon
It should only be called composting when you to toss your manuscript out the window & all over the lawn @DaveCullen #creativenf #creativenf

@rebeccaskloot I was watching this video where u discussed structure of #HeLa. Did u write the whole book in chron order 1st? #creativenf
Rebecca Skloot @RebeccaSkloot
@MishaAngrist I knew from start that I wanted to write it with a disjointed structure, & like a crazy person ... #creativenf
Rebecca Skloot @RebeccaSkloot
@MishaAngrist I actually tried to write it that way at 1st but quickly realized that way lay madness. So I unbraided it ... #creativenf
Rebecca Skloot @RebeccaSkloot
@MishaAngrist There r 3 narratives, & in the end I wrote each one chronologically, then broke them up & braided them together #creativenf
Misha Angrist @MishaAngrist
@ recent NASW mtg @David_Dobbs gave gr8 talk on structure using music as metaphor. Do u ever think in those terms? #creativenf
Rebecca Skloot @RebeccaSkloot
@MishaAngrist I talk in that video about the process of that braiding, which involved a lot of multi colored index cards. #creativenf
