Notice: This is a SUMMARY of “Accidental Genius. Using Writing to Generate Your Best Ideas, Insight and Content” by Mark Levy.
Mark Levy, author of Accidental Genius: Using Writing to Generate Your Best Ideas, Insight, and Content, tells us to break the mold for problem solving and venture outside our comfort zone to overcome mental roadblocks. Unfortunately, each of us has a literary critic in our heads who’s concerned with polishing our thoughts and ideas before they’re released to the general public. One way to release our minds from this restraint is to engage in Freewriting. Mark has championed this method for many years, which has allowed him to generate ingenious solutions for business, as well as come up with ideas for books and articles. Freewriting is deceptively simple: write without thinking, free your mind of your worries, while neglecting all concerns for grammar, punctuation, and spelling. At this pace, your inner critic be able to keep up with you, allowing you untethered access to your once-inaccessible creativity.
