Formulaic Writing

I use formulas for my writing. Once I find a healthy formula, I stretch it around, changing a variable here; doubling a variable there.

Think of it like wrapping your hands in tight gloves, then wriggling your fingersβ€”looking for the tension in the fabric. This is what my brain likes to do.

While this is not the sole creative approach I use, I lean into this method for a reason. …I’ll let you know when I figure the reason out.
