The two Crusie collage links confirm the Story Structure to Die For insights (see initial post of today). Our subconscious knows the tale to be told. Maybe a collage can help us discover it, uncover it, define it.
The first of the two is a long post, so grab your cuppa joe and settle in. Here is that one: http://www.jennycrusie.com/for-writers/essays/picture-this-collage-as-prewriting-and-inspiration/#container.
And then the second link shares actual pictures of the collages. Very artistic! Find them here: http://www.jennycrusie.com/more-stuff/book-collages/.
As a pantster who works off instinct and intuition, I could get into this. Plus, I may not have all the artistic painter genes to render the kind of covers I need for my novels, but I'm capable enough to collect and collage, so this seems like a fun art project from start to finish.
[Please keep on praying for Grant. See post immediately before this one. Thank you and God bless.]
