How the Writing Process Works...

Thought this was funny. You see, this is what happens when you place product over process. Captain Kirk is clearly a 'product' writer who, when told his effort needed more work, quickly became enraged,

Spock would have handled it differently. Calm and cool, he might say ... 'I have no need for you to approve or disapprove of this writing."

Seriously though, when you focus on the 'process' of creating rather than the product, you get the benefit of actually enjoying yourself instead of suffering. It really is all about values here.

If you want a product, you can get one. If you want the experience of actually feeling something at the piano instead, you can have that as well.

The cool thing is that when you focus on the process instead of product, the end result is usually a 'better' product.
