Remember Wednesday when I talked about The End really being a beginning of sorts? All that editing, marketing, and design …
Those things could be your next priority, but what about those of you who are ready to embark on a whole new ROW80 adventure? How do you see your Round3 starting—with a B.A.N.G. or a slow meandering exploration of possibilities?
Why not both?
Inspired by Toric legend in which the mystical combination of four Hebrew letters: Yud י, Hei ה, Vav ו, and Hei ה) contain the steps of creation — B. A. N. G. stands for:
- B is for Begin with your strongest idea.
- A is for Arrange your material into a concrete form.
- N is for nurture your project with love, so that others may love it too.
- G is for complete it, and let it GO out into the world to live independently.

What steps do you follow to reach your creative place as a writer?
Oh… and before I forget, here is your linky: Hope to hear great things from you. 🙂
