Exploring the Soulful Writing Process of Talking to Crows
“Being free in the presence is intense for me, and that is what that process was.… I was vulnerable, sharing where I normally wouldn’t.” —Stefan T.Wong
Stefan T.Wong didn’t originally come to me to work on his book, Talking to Crows. He actually came to get another project edited, but what happened was a reluctant writing project that became a profound and introspective creation.
In this episode of “Authors Who Lead,” I talk to Stefan about his unexpected journey in writing this book, Talking to Crows, and the creativity and spiritual nature of writing.
Creativity Comes from the Unknown
As writers, we must embrace the unknown and nurture our curiosity to uncover new perspectives and meanings in our work.
Books as Companions
Talking to Crows is not just a book but a spiritual journey and a guide for being present in a busy and divisive world. It serves as a companion for those seeking a deeper experience of life.
Organic and Intuitive Writing
Our approach to writing Talking to Crows was not conventional. Instead, we delved into a cosmic, reflective, and intuitive process, infusing the book with spiritual messages and sentiments.
In this podcast, Stefan also shares with us:
- You may need multiple different editors for your book.
- You don’t need a big idea to write a successful book.
- It’s normal to have several creative sides of yourself; they can inspire each other.
- How NOT writing at first and just giving his ideas space actually helped inform his book.
