Coincidences always happen if you keep your mind open, while storyboards remain the instruments of cowards who do not trust in their own imagination and who are slaves of a matrix. If you get used to planning your shots based solely on aesthetics, you are never that far from kitsch.
This Werner Herzog quote works really well for writing, too. Any artistic process really. We are never too far from kitsch. Do you need a strict outline, or do you tend to just wing it? Whatever your approach, have a productive week. Stay healthy, happy and sane.

Glad you’re having a great time over here. Have a lovely week ahead.
Great? Well, glad it seems like e that! 🙂 After or partcial lockdown followed lockdown which just keeps being extended. Maybe we’ll end up in super lockdown some time … Doing creative things is great for your sanity!
The endless extensions are wearing us down. I have tried to be there for my friends but everyone seems to be crumbling. It is hard for everyone to stay positive. We could do with some cheering up. Thank you for offering some of that.
I start with an idea and usually something else happens! 😀
I do the same thing! It is really a tricky question for me right now. Without a rough outline it’s hard to build tension but the characters have other ideas at times and need space too. Stephen King doesn’t plot but throws the characters in situations … He’s also not famous for his endings 😉 I’d be happy to finish me project here. Fingers crossed!
What an excellent quote! And nicely illustrated too with the image.
Thank you! To plot or not to plot is really a tough question …
I am lucky as I don’t have to come up with creative content as the walk and resulting photos take care of the story line. I don’t know if I could come up with something witty or timely to write about all the time, especially if I didn’t want to dwell on current events (usually abysmal these days).
Thank you Linda. The ideas are not the problem,, ratherr the time to execute them properly 🙂 Plus, I do like to read other blogs and the day only has 24 hours … I am workking on a writing project and should probably skip blogging for a bit but once you get used to it … Oh well …
I was going to ask you if you’re still taking your creative writing class. I cut down on the blog posts, even though I have still got a ton of photos I’ve not used yet and could still do three posts a week. Like you said, there are only so many hours in a day and I was spending at least 12 hours a day in front of a computer between work and blogging.
Same here, work, blog, project … and where do the corona kilos come from?? 😉
If not for the walking, I would be doing nothing but sitting … that’s why I began my walking regimen in 2011, but I wasn’t blogging then. I started blogging in 2013, but only had two followers until 2017. Then the extra sitting began as well as the extra poundage/kilo-age. 🙂
