The scientific side of writing.

Applying science to creative writing is like applying it to life. It makes it a lot easier and more powerful. But many writers fear science.

The scientific side of writing.

By Michell Léon

I have taken on a writing project that involves science, and it made me think about our general fear of writing about science as creative writers.

Personally, I love science (which belongs to the fire-element), but I don't have the mind to be a scientist. I like the challenge of figuring out ways to explain complicated stuff in simple ways, though. I also like actually knowing what stuff is, rather than resting on pure belief.

Concept is key

Having said that, I belong to the artistic tribe of people in this world, and I have to use abstract and creative thinking to get anything done. Including writing.
