This blog revolves around my two passions–creativity and psychology–but, so far the slant has been in psychology’s favor, for most of my posts (with the exception of an occasional quote) have been written from a scientific perspective. It’s therefore important to acknowledge that the relationship between these two spheres can be explored from other perspectives, as well. The psychology of creativity can be embodied, illustrated, depicted, examined–you name it–both by and through creative writing itself. Fiction can be a mirror of sorts, one that reflects back on itself, on the creative process, and on the minds that engage in creative activities. It can be a picture and a window at the same time.
I’ve wanted to add this new page to my blog for quite some time, and–with spring in the air–it finally feels like the right time to introduce The Notebook.
Check it out to read creative, rather than scientific, entries. You’ll see that the first post is a “short short” story (a form I challenged myself, as a novelist, to experiment with for the first time last autumn) called “The Bridge.”
As always, thanks for reading!
