Someone You Might Like if You're a Fellow Process Junkie
Earlier this year I received a mysterious, colourful box full of creative paraphernalia amid a book named “Skip To The Fun Parts” — Cartoons and Complaints about the Creative Process.
I can’t tell you how welcome it was: I was knee deep in my latest book and was hitting a creative rut around page 56 of 110…. I liked that Dana didn’t offer solutions, necessarily, but complaints. It was nice to read that I wasn’t the only one in the throes of madness.
Dana has a similar curiosity about the elusive nature of the creative process... and the tools we use therein! If you, like me, are a Process Junkie, you’ll very much appreciate Dana’s delving into every aspect of this crazy thing we do.
I got to have lunch with Dana this past month when she was in New York for the New Yorker Festival. I got her to sign my book, and picked her brains about her background and the process she is using for her work. I think you’ll really like her!
