So a guy I work with, someone I've been sharing pieces of my book with since I started writing, tells me about this little technique called "the flow." Apparently, this happens randomly and when it does, you sit for 30-45 minutes and spill words onto paper until it's "done". (which usually takes the 30-45 minutes I mentioned) Now, I've experienced something like this, but I'm a smoker so I gotta stop in between bursts of writing for some nicotine. He tells me that this is about the only time 'good' writing happens. I disagree though, sometimes I can sit and just type for about three hours. Not constantly, but as things come to me. Could anyone comfirm this? Alot of my writing comes from either dreams, things that randomly pop into my head or just simple brainstorming and/or influences from things that I enjoy. Hope I'm doin' it right.
