Though I haven't done it yet, I am very sure that actually drawing your characters while playing some music you feel somehow connects to the mood of your story will create words of fire on your pages!

Try though I might, I cannot seem to run on greed as my fuel, nor a tendency to "hoard". I'm put together to run on PASSION.

I've actually never read the book, oddly enough!

I stand by outlines almost patriotically. They work. Writers who act all allergic to them and high-and-mighty about their not needing plans because "plans like, ruin the art, man, plans lock you in to the system's way of thinking, bro" are fooling themselves.
