Seeking Flow in the New Year

As a Fiction Writer, Chuck Palahniuk fan, and seeker of Flow Tribal Writer’s five-part series, Tyler Durden’s Rules for Writing in the Zone just clicked. She does a great survey of some of the key principles: pushing past “productive procrastination” to get into the Flow (that point where the activity takes over and the story writes itself), learning from failure, the importance of the re-write & finding motivation.

Fittingly, I also started reading Drive by Dan Pink this morning, which explores motivation in depth. His incredible TED talk on the same premise appears below.
