The Art of Incubation
When we are not actively working toward a stated goal, we tend to call it procrastination. Often this is accurate. However, procrastination is sometimes confused with incubation, the process of ruminating and allowing ideas the time they need to take root.
Fierce on the Page Chapter 29 invites you clarify this distinction for yourself. And now I’m inviting you to share what you’ve noticed here.
How do you distinguish between incubation and procrastination in your writing life? Are you giving yourself enough space to become receptive to illumination? How can you build in some breathing room and hold space for what you are inviting in? When could slowing down actually be the most efficient way to move toward your goal?
I’d love to hear in the space below. Let’s see if we can go deeper into our understanding and practice of incubation, together.
