Developing your ideal writing process can dramatically improve the quality of your writing. It can promote the flow of ideas, words, images, and energy; help you to write your most moving, engaging, or convincing work; and make the act of writing as pleasurable and energizing as possible. Below are some suggestions to help you discover your own ideal writing process: • Experiment. Try out different variations and approaches. Note what works and what doesn't. • Listen to your heart and gut. Your intuition usually knows what will work and what won't (though sometimes it may be maddeningly silent).

Some begin with the first scene or image, then write the piece in the exact sequence in which they intend it to be read; others write the final scene or stanza first, then work backward. Still others compose the easiest parts first, then fill in the gaps. Some writers write the same piece from a variety of angles or viewpoints, then pick the one that works best; others select a viewpoint before they write a single word. Some spend days, weeks, or even months pondering before they finally sit down to write; others just sit down (or stand up), begin writing, and see what happens.

I strongly urge you to avoid all of the following: T • Any literary agent who demands a fee to read your work and consider it for representation. , who charges, say, $50 per submission rather than a percentage of what they earn for you). • Any publisher that wants to publish your work, but requires you to pony up some or all of the costs of publication. • Any anthology editor who accepts your work, but refuses to give you even one free copy of the book on publication. " • Anyone who makes unsolicited contact with you and offers— for a fee—to help you publish your work or improve your writing.
