"Drawing is a form of expressing story without using words," says our guest Grace Fong. In this episode, Tempest, Aleen, and Grace explore how artists tell stories, how they add to existing stories, why mind palaces are important, and how travel contributes to it all.
In a world and an era when
is vying for attention,
how do you you stand above the crowd,
make yourself heard,
build an audience?
Sometimes you feel you've got to
Run away you've got to
Get away from the day-to-day things surrounding you
The things you make
Seem to go nowhere
And you've lost your light
For you try and try but just can't write!
Sometimes life takes you
In unexpected directions
And to unexpected places
Or entirely new continents and countries
And then, sometimes,
Life takes you right back to where you started
So you can foster your own creativity
And help others as they foster theirs
from an idea
a musical sensation more fun than Hooked on Phonics
it may be a remix
but don't dismiss it out of hand
this comic is packed with diversity
and it's anything but bland
Everyone can draw
To some extent, at least
Creating art when you write
Results in an intellectual feast!
Both here and elsewhere, you’ll hear it a lot:
you need to find new points of view to have creative thoughts
That means seeking out different perspectives
maybe with someone with different objectives
to create something
It's a wonderful thing but
Sometimes, you need more.
Maybe you'll travel.
Or go to the library.
It's a place to get started.
Footnotes are awesome.
Sometimes flexing the muscles of your creativity
Means writing for something like an RPG
What do people want to do?
Where do they want to go?
The possibilities seem endless
And it’s up to you to help them enjoy the flow.
It's almost time for NaNoWriMo
A time to give your inner critic the ol' heave-ho
Take some time to let the words flow
You never know where this might go!
