Writing and the Creative Life: Writing sprint? How about a writing walk!

Raphael: You’re a prolific Tweeter, and …what is a “writing sprint”. Jane: This is a little thing …. Raphael: Because I see you, like, “I’m going into a writing sprint. ” And I always think, “What is that. Jane: Yeah. It’s the silliest thing in the world. It’s just a way for me to say, “Hey, I really need to write now. I’m having too much fun here on Twitter. So what I’m going to do, is I’m going to announce on Twitter that I’m going to go write for an hour. So you’ll keep me honest. Raphael: That’s great. It’s like reverse-engineering the way Twitter actually, oftentimes kind of sucks your day away. In this case, you’re actually using it almost like a timer, right. Jane: Yeah, exactly. Raphael: That’s great. Jane: So I need to do an hour’s worth of work. I think it really helps to do assignments by the time, not by the task. You get more done if you say, “I’m going to work with tremendous focus for an hour,” than you do if you say, “I’ll work until the scene is done. ” Because then the scene will take an hour, where if you just say, “I’ll work for an hour,” you may get three scenes done. But the innovative part of the sprint is that I say, “You guys at home, do the same thing. If you’ve got an hour right now, sit down with me. You’ll get that feeling of community, that feeling that you get when you’re sitting in the reference room at the library, working, and everyone around you is working, too. It’s like, “I’m not alone. There’s someone else out there working, too. ” And so people work along at the same time I do, and people have started hosting their own sprints, so it’s them and their followers sprinting. And I get people every day , saying, “I finished my dissertation. ” “I finished my novel because of your sprints. ” And it’s made me realize how rare it is these days for anyone to work for an hour without checking their email, sending a tweet, getting a text, getting a call. That an hour of focus has become something people haven’t had in years , and they’re getting huge amounts done. If there’s any spike in productivity this year, and the American economy, I think it will be because of the amazing people who have adopted my little Twitter trick to make myself work, because people are out there working. And I’m so thrilled to see people getting stuff done. And it works. I discovered the Pomodoro technique which exists in the same solar system as a writing sprint: Set a timer for 30 minutes and just write. Nothing else. While the timer is ticking down, the only thing you do is write. That’s all great. Writing sprint… Pomodoro… sometimes there’s nothing better at inducing productivity than an intentional ass-in-chair writing session allowing for no distractions. And then there’s this :. Steve Jobs, the late co-founder of Apple, was known for his walking meetings. A new study by Stanford researchers provides an explanation for this. Creative thinking improves while a person is walking and shortly thereafter, according to a study co-authored by Marily Oppezzo , a Stanford doctoral graduate in educational psychology, and Daniel Schwartz , a professor at Stanford Graduate School... The study found that walking indoors or outdoors similarly boosted creative inspiration. The act of walking itself, and not the environment, was the main factor. Across the board, creativity levels were consistently and significantly higher for those walking compared to those sitting. “Many people anecdotally claim they do their best thinking when walking. We finally may be taking a step, or two, toward discovering why,” Oppezzo and Schwartz wrote in the study published this week in the Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory and Cognition. A person walking indoors – on a treadmill in a room facing a blank wall – or walking outdoors in the fresh air produced twice as many creative responses compared to a person sitting down, one of the experiments found. “I thought walking outside would blow everything out of the water, but walking on a treadmill in a small, boring room still had strong results, which surprised me,” Oppezzo said. The study also found that creative juices continued to flow even when a person sat back down shortly after a walk.

La cohorte invincible (1928) - Giorgio de Chirico (1888-1978)
Belem, Berardo Collection, Centro Cultural de Belem, Lisbon, Portugal MATERIALS : Oil on canvas BIOGRAPHY From Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia Giorgio de Chirico (Italian: [ˈdʒordʒo deˈkiːriko]; 10 July 1888 – 20 November 1978) was an Italian artist. In the years before World War I, he founded the scuola metafisica art movement, which profoundly influenced the surrealists. After 1919, he became interested in traditional painting techniques, and worked in a neoclassical or neo-Baroque style, while frequently revisiting the metaphysical themes of his earlier work. De Chirico was born in Volos, Greece, to a Genoan mother and a Sicilian father] After studying art in Athens—mainly under the guidance of the influential Greek painters Georgios Roilos and Georgios Jakobides—and Florence, he moved to Germany in 1906, following his father's death in 1905. He entered the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich, where he read the writings of the philosophers Nietzsche, Arthur Schopenhauer and...
