In the spirit of Proverbs 10:19, our newest regular feature will be a series of posts of 100 words — or fewer. Comments under ten words!

To me, the creative process is most like an archaeological dig. Traveling in a desert landscape, whether on a hunt or unaware, I am suddenly waylaid — flat on my face, sprawled over the edge of some previously unseen idea, protruding from the ground.

I dare not try to retrace my steps, so I act immediately — unearthing that thought, polishing it, and then exploring the immediate vicinity for the connective tissue to bring it to perfect completion.

And sometimes — on rare occasion — the wires fade away. And finished, it is one, again.
