Process


In teaching, I'm constantly refining what I do. What works, what doesn't, what can I try t make better, and what absolutely flops. It's all about making gradual improvements to how I approach the job. I'm constantly engaged in it, even during times when I'm not teaching.
I'm not nearly as robust when it comes to my writing process. I think it's largely because I have a lot of feedback when it comes to teaching. Writing is largely solitary, and even when you get in touch with other writers, often it's more about what was written instead of how the wring happens. I've struggled with finding what works, and it's an intensely personal process.
Little bouts of random experimentation are hard to evaluate, and inspiration regarding the process is slow in coming. One of the things that does work for me are my graphs, so I've continued that. Now I'm experimenting with the time I do my writing, and the results are opposite what I thought they would be.
Time to do some more experimentation.
