I find the grind interesting. The grind of writing. Which tools do writers use? This is the opposite of the high flown, creative stuff. This is not inspiration. This is about the coal face.
Now each chapter starts life as a kind of archipelago of inspiring quotes, which makes it seem far less daunting. All I have to do is build bridges between the islands.
I use DevonTHINK too. And so does Michael Chabon.
