Think Sideways Movie #1 - A Thousand Words For Wings

So, as I've said before, the month of January is as insanely hectic as December was, what with the various writing, work, and extra curricular commitments. Gweh o.O

For the next few weeks, therefore, I'm going to share with you the videos from the Think Sideways course. Yes, don't worry, I have full permission to do this :) And it will give you a better idea of what the course is like. Be warned - the videos, naturally, do not cover the detail of the course. They are the introductions to each month, and as such are introductory in nature. I like them, though, and hopefully you will be able to get something out of them.

Today, Month One: Thinking: Ideas - And A Thousand Words For Wings.

Feel free to discuss the movie in the comments - what do you think? :)

All I could hear was echoes of my goblin general from NaNo. "Yes, and the opportunity here is to die horribly."

It's a nice thought, but not many people think rationally when stressed. And even fewer people would call something an opportunity. Maybe a solution. But it's good to try a different way of thinking every now and then.

Inky, thank you so much for sharing this! I want to take this class in the future. I will, when the time is right.

I like Lei's comment that not many people think rationally when stressed. However, I think we can train ourselves to - if we wish.

I personally love the idea of thinking of problems as opportunities. Especially in writing. I will keep this in mind as I finish Monarch.
