Where is it, and in what kind of scenario, do you find yourself 'riffing' the best?
This is the part where I should probably explain what ‘riffing’ actually is. For me, it is the process of creating ideas; either as part of my current WIP, or in general for ideas for future novels and works. Annoyingly, it most commonly occurs when I am in the shower with no easy access to something to write down the ideas on. But this is not such a bad thing, as I will explain below.
A little advice here for anyone lost. This comes from a published writer in nonfiction for over ten years of articles, marketing material and web copy.
In terms of writing fiction, it comes from over six years of experience with several draft manuscripts, one of which is going through a potential publishing opportunity.
This is not always a linear affair, and different writers work in different ways. Let me tell you about what I do and, if that helps, I am glad. If it does not help you, keep searching for whatever it is you need, and best of luck in your hunt for answers!
