Order and Chaos in Writing

Recommended Posts

Recognizing Writing as the Marriage of Order and Chaos

 

This appeared on K.M. Weiland's blog.  

Quote

Much of the discussion about writing process comes down to whether or not an author finds it more comfortable to outline a novel upfront, or not. There’s a reason this argument is front and center. Within it lies one of the most foundational dichotomies of the creative life.

Chaos and order.

This everlasting, swirling dichotomy of power and control is one with which all writers are intimately familiar. Indeed, the best writing inevitably emerges from the tension point between chaos and order.

It seems to me that one could eliminate "the creative" and be right on.
