The Prompter Room

For Monday, October 12, 2015:

“If I create from the heart, nearly everything works; if from the head, almost nothing.”

Marc Chagall

This has proved true for me, at least when I write fiction, and it’s one reason I don’t work well from outlines.  When I do use one, I always end up straying far from it.  I do make notes, but I leave them open-ended and sometimes don’t even use them.

What is your experience?  Think back over the pieces you’ve created — artwork, writing, cooking, furniture, etc.  Can you identify those you’ve created from your head and those you’ve created from your heart?
