One of my philosophies is when you’re on a roll, don’t stifle your creativity. As I await for feedback on my Enhanced Novel Template, I’ve working on three things. Two presentations, and a thesis/dissertation template. The later stems from a mind map I created from reading and utilizing the Guide to Successful Thesis and Dissertation Writing. I found this book rather helpful in my graduate education.
I wanted to take the mind map a step further and utilize Scrivener. I had seen other templates floating around the net, but I figure, if I interface what I gleamed from my own studies, writing, and implement them, I could come up with a pretty good template that might even help with composing journal articles, and future research. So it’s in the works.
Again, how does this help me with my job hunt. I have a digital portfolio. I can’t just sit around moping, feeling sorry for myself. I do have days like that, but then I end up criticizing myself and kicking my posterior to do something. I can only accomplish so many applications in a day and need to go on to other things. I hone my skills, and I am thinking about writing. And I realize, I might just be organizing all the stuff that is in my head, getting it out in digital form and creating something I could utilize in that said portfolio.
So when on a roll, don’t stifle your creativity.
