Whilst listening to The Beatles I came across bonus tracks; demo versions, deconstructed versions and yet to be completed versions. I always find these alternative versions a fascinating listen. It kind of gives you an idea of the original concept before one of them had the light bulb moment and decided to add words, extra-musical parts or even an orchestra (if that is your thing). As I say, not really a Beatles fan but it was a good example of the layering or even unlayering of the creative process. This of course is adaptable to any creative process including various forms of writing. I have been deconstructing books for quite a while now which I believe is helping my writing.
