In this chapter I focus on the writing process. I identify the core activities of writing (writing, reading, drawing, thinking, talking and working with data) and lay out the four stages of the writing process, as I see them, using the process of creating a painting as an analogy (preparing the ground, blocking in the scene, adding detail, refining and focusing, and finishing and framing). I then discuss some of the practicalities of enhancing your writing productivity, focusing on deep work and writing rituals and routines.
