Finding the Zone
I got this book a long time ago. I think it was published 1984? So, some of it might be a little outdated but its still an awesome little book.
I often find little flocks of words in books and just think; ooooo, awesome phrase. Dean Koontz has a beautiful way with language. I love listening to his books on CD because of his talented turn of words. I often highlight sentences in books because they're so impactful.
I think sometimes I can find the flow to do this but other times it eludes me. It's like you have to be in some kind of zone to get to the place in your mind where the words string together in just the right way. I just wish I knew how to call up that zone at will.
Anyone know where the zone is? Can ya draw me a map?
