Blogging the Creative Process, continued
Mind the Gap, over at ArtsJournal, replies:
I personally thought Perron’s admonishment to knock the blogging off was a little harsh, but the seemingly always-distracted-by-blinking-technology side of me understands that she has a point.
The act of putting my creative process into words is immensely helpful to me as I seek to solve the problems I encounter therein. I agree wholeheartedly with both Perron and Stravinsky that the depths of some aspects ofcreation are dark, murky, inexplicable and, like dance itself, outside language. But there are many stages to dance making.
It seems like its more of a complicated questions than it would first appear. What are your thoughts? Do you blog your process? Is it helpful? Do you see the act of blogging your process as an outreach tool or as a vital part of your creative process? Do you think the act of blogging affects the outcome of the work itself? I’d like to hear from more creative folks about the role blogging/twitter, etc etc. plays in how they make and conceive of their work.
