Excerpt from "The Flush"
The flush is not bathroom humor, but rather my way of meeting deadlines and managing my projects, leaving me with more time to write. For me personally, I am always working on new stories as well as contributing to websites and magazines. Oh, and don’t forget the promotion and marketing. For the writers out there, you know this takes much more time than the actual writing. Writing for me is NOT my full time job so I needed a way to organize, prioritize, and reduce the stress associated with an overflowing to do list.
The methodology behind it is simple: FLUSH it out of your mind. In other words, write it down, everything. This includes story ideas, general observations, character descriptions, and your general “to do” items. All you need is a notebook (or writing app on your computer, iPod, tablet, etc…). Once you’ve flushed out everything your mind is free to focus on highest priority items and also think of new ideas, hopefully story ideas for future writing!
