I think every writer has a thinking cap, or shall I say those thinking pondering moments that become days, weeks and months as a new creation is birthed. Very much like travailing, and the tri mesters of birth. That's an agonizing thought.
Yet in many ways creative writing can be agonizing in the sense that everything must develop from thoughts that start coming together creating words, sentences, paragraphs and a story line that paints a picture from the viewing eye's.
