Inside the creative process of @ArthurSlade

As I’ve mentioned before, part of my life is spent studying how creativity works and how software tools might be designed differently to help foster the human creative process. It probably comes as no surprise that one aspect of creative expression that particularly fascinates me is that of fiction writers. So in the interests of exploring this more broadly than just my own habits and practices, I’ve decided to interview other writers as well – asking them about their working processes. In the end, I hope this will form a rich and valuable resource for student authors and even other working writers, as well as a fascinating peek behind the curtain for our fans.

While I am conducting simultaneous interviews with several other authors, I am pleased to report that one such interview is now complete and ready for public consumption. Please restrain your cries of horror as I tear off the top of Arthur Slade’s skull, and invite you to join me as I poke around at the meaty bits inside.
