I’m teaching a creative writing course soon. Every writer needs another source of income and I’m thinking of making this mine.
However – I can teach the nuts and bolts. I can teach all the tricks. I can give advice. I can set exercises. But how do I teach that moment of inspiration?
We can all do a workmanlike piece of writing, following all the plans and rules. But what’s needed is the spark. The one that transcends rules and ignores plans. The only advice I can give is to daydream, and wait.
