Love Julie True Kingsley’s post about her writing process is like her battle against the corn meal moths. She describes her writing process as having a lot of intensity and fervor, but can be frenzied. She also looks at more meticulous and steady approaches, like how Jo Knowles described how her writing process is like running.
That, of course, got me thinking about my own writing style. I don’t think I’m as enthusiastic as Julie and I’m not as focused as Jo. Probably not surprisingly, I turned to adorable animal videos for my answer. Then it hit me.
I’m like Maru.
In particular, this video of Maru:
Maru circles the box. He’s uncertain about this box at first. Then Maru can’t get enough.
Like Maru, sometimes I need to circle an idea for a while. I don’t tend to talk about my works-in-progress a lot. Sometimes I get nervous about starting to write and actually sitting at the desk, and will avoid it. But once I’m there I love it. I end up wishing I could do it all day. I am totally Maru jumping into the box.
What’s your writing style like?
Also, if you haven’t seen any of Maru’s videos, check them out. Maru’s hilarious.
