I’ve researched and have read a lot of do this/ do that and I firmly believe, no. I shouldn’t do any of it. I want to be outside of the box.
I will say it is challenging to find original material to write about. I stick with personal essays and using my photography as inspiration to unique story ideas. The thing about taking photos all. the. time. is that I catch details I didn’t see in the present moment when I was there. I feel this helps a lot with creative writing inspiration.
