July 19, 2012 - Revaluing creativity

Filed under Book Research

I’ve been thinking a lot about revaluing lately. A few months ago, I started dreaming up a new novel idea about dumpster diving. Now it’s morphed into a story about guerilla gardening. (The warfare terminology of the latter makes me cringe, but I love the concept.) I’ve also been thinking about random acts of kindness, and it seems to me that all of these are related: they all involve placing renewed value on trash, public spaces, and each other. I love that in life. I want to do more of it, and I want to write about it. I’ll let you know how it goes.
