A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

For all the aspiring writers hoping upon hope for a glance into the life of a published author, Jeff Vandermeer delivers a photographic essay on the writing process.

Assembled: notecards with individual fragments of dialogue, phrases, ideas; more formalized bullet point character and story notes already typed up; partial rough draft scenes housed in notebooks; additional notes on the inside of a folder; and the thick, black cover of the moleskin tome in which I tend to do more rapacious and complete rough drafts.

And for the super-observant stalkers, there’s even a glimpse of blinds, chairs, and linoleum. More pictures at the link above (with relevant explanations).
