Process – Trifextra Week 76

This week the Trifecta team have been inspired by recent up close and personal contact with Neil Gaiman, one of my favourite authors. We have been asked to offer our own three words which describe our writing process. Firstly I thought about biscuits. Then tea. Then I got distracted by my desire for both. Then I got serious….I hope you enjoy my offering โ€“ pleaseย visit hereย to read many more!

DISTILL

DISTORT

DISSEMINATE

Please excuse the strange formatting – I am trying to submit this on my so-called smartphone, on a train, with rubbish connection. I will remove all shouting caps and terrible formatting when I am in front of a real computer. Unless I have spontaneously combusted with frustration before then.

+++ Update: I like tidy. So I have edited the formatting, typos and other glitches that resulted from my smartphone-fest yesterday. Really, I am so anal that I have to resist going way back to the beginning of this blog (well, that was only April this year!) in order to get all the posts in the same font format.

  1. First of all, I’m impressed that you did a post on your phone. I’ve only tried commenting (and ended up with typos all over the place.) I’m too chicken to do an actual post that way!

    Distort was an interesting choice. When I first read it, I thought of distorting an actual event to make it fiction…but it also works as distorting our initial vision of a scene to a more enhanced one.

    1. Thank you for being impressed with my perseverance. i was tempted to throw the phone out of the train window, but that would have been rather silly… ๐Ÿ™‚

      I think I use distort in both ways that you mention – like creating a hyper-real situation out of something normal, or indeed changing it completely. Or both at the same time!
