"Write a challenge to your future self"

When writing a story, you dont have to have all the answers. You can write something that sounds intriguing so you challenge your future self. Then you can expand upon a small phrase into a whole world.

Ursula K. LeGuin did this in the Earthsea series, writing about the Tombs of Atun without knowing what they meant.

Its a way of Writing-From-the-Subconscious

A writer sometimes writes a message for herself, to be read when she begins to underĀ­stand it. [[ Ursula K. LeGuin ]] Via [[ Robin-Sloan ]]A Challenge to Herself ^98bb3904
