First point, I hate the word ideation. Just saying.
I can't remember if I've posted this before, but what the heck. Thanks to "Diablo Cody..." for sharing this. Windows onto the writing process are always intriguing.
The Mamet connection reminded me of this post, which is of itself fething brilliant.
And while I'm in a sharing mood, if you're not regularly looking at Jeff Vandermeer's blog Ecstatic Days, or Graham Linehan's Why, That's Delightful, or dipping into the works of Peter Temple, Ted Chiang, Kelly Link or Ben Katchor, then there are ways your life can probably be enhanced.
