Creative Process: Organization

15 Jun

Our Composer of Music for Art is taking advantage of her manageable hangover this morning to take stock a bit.  And that taking stock seems to be drawing her into some basic organizing.

Having created a body of over 70 blog posts, most of which have gone unread, our Lady has decided to finally think a little about optimizing her wordpress site.  This led to some review about basic definitions of “category” and “tags”.  It led to facing up to the reality that her understanding of these terms was exactly backwards.  Categories are the chapters.  Tags are the “back of the book” index entries.  The categories are the searchable terms.   The tags, on the other hand, serve to gather up all posts which contain the tag word or subject.

The concept of our Girl’s blog is to illuminate aspects of Creative Life, Artistic Personality, Creative Process, in ways which are inspirational, motivational.

Initially, she developed a plethora of categories.  Ultimately she refined her categories to the following:

Artistic growth

Artistic Personality

Creative Cycle

Creative Life

Creative Process

She then eliminated subcategories, and began assigning them, instead, as tags, to particular posts.  These tags include:

isolation, commitment, purpose, feedback, inspiration, learning, technique, channeling, self destructive, collaboration, creative destruction, creative thought, organization, problem solving

She looks forward to elucidating the various categories and tags for her readers.  She looks forward to making the site more attractive, more useful, to building a community of thinkers on Creative Life and Process.
