The Process of Writing a Book by Guillaume Morisette

The process of writing, graph, writers, authors guillaume morissette

I happened upon this graph by Canadian writer Guillaume Morissette last week on Instagram (I seem to get everything I know off Instagram these days. This may not necessarily be a good thing and probably says a lot more about me than I’d like, but I’ll take what I’m given by way of discoveries).

Anyway, I love this graph because it is so completely true. At any given time, I’m hopping manically between any of these levels on the graph. At the moment, I’m at a good spot – I’m back at Medium Creativity – but who knows where I’ll be next week. Or the next day. Anywhere under the timeline, I’m assuming.

By the way, if you don’t know writer Guillaume Morissette (and I’ll be shamelessly honest – I did not know who he was before I found this graph and now all I’m wondering is if he’s related to Alanis Morissette and if Morissette is a common name in Canada – forgive me, Canadians, for my terrible ignorance) check him out. His Tumblr is entertaining and if his books are anything like his writing online, I’m definitely buying.

Speaking of buying – Robin McKinley’s FINALLY released her backlist as e-books! I can now purchase every one of them on my Kindle! This is indeed a happy day for me. Now all I have to do is wait until the end of October when I’m released from my self-imposed no-buying-new-books-or-clothes-or-any-kind-of-unnecessary-item budget restrictions. Why did I ever do this to myself? Don’t books count as necessary items? I might just faint if I don’t get to read them soon. That, I believe, counts as necessary.
