Saturday Source: A Writer’s Paris

I apologize for the lateness of this post. I ended up having to work in a different town today and had no computer or Internet until now.

Today’s source is a book, A Writer’s Paris by creativity coach Eric Maisel.

The book is made up of various sections that I wouldn’t quite call chapters. They’re more like essays. My favorite has to do with the one called “Apricots” where he and another woman were buying apricots at a Parisian market. They were being choosy at first, but the man selling the apricots said at that price, they had to use the scoop and get whatever they got and — basically — make the best of their lot.

To me, that correlates quite well with the idea-generating process. I’m not sure that’s what he had in mind with that essay, but that’s one of the things I took away from it.
