The Write Way – Trifextra Challenge

  • Silence
  • Inspiration
  • Release

Written for the weekend Trifecta Challenge: One of our editors was recently lucky enough to slowly roast on a bouncy, mechanical floor thisclose to nearly 900 other Portlanders for a reading (of the third chapter of his new book, The Ocean at the End of the Lane) and subsequent Q&A by Neil Gaiman.  One of the questions asked of him was, “Can you tell us your writing process in three words?”  He replied, “Glare.  Drink tea.”

This weekend, we’re asking for you to sum up your own process with just three little words.  Give us dry wit, pathos or otherwise.  And remember, we like your blood on the page.  Put it there. – See more at:

  1. Oh I like RELEASE, that is a good one for how it feels to finally hit publish.

    (plus I really like your blog, it’s very comfortable)

  2. some of my most peaceful writing days were spent in the parking lot of a nearby lake with the windows rolled down and the loon-song washing over me. Quiet is good – nature’s quiet 🙂
