Collage as Prewriting and Inspiration, per Jennifer Crusie

Another CP of mine forwarded a post from Patricia Burroughs's blog entitled Let's Write a Book . . . , in which she shares Jennifer Crusie's collage process. You may find Pat aka Pooks here: http://classofpooks.blogspot.com/2012/09/jenny-crusies-collage-system-whiteboard.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+LetsWriteABook+%28Let%27s+write+a+book...%29.

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.]
