The concept of “filling up buckets” as a minimalist work-flow: scenes -> chapters -> acts. Each bucket fills up and overflows into the next layer.
On a more granular scale:
Letters, Words, Sentences, Paragraphs, Scenes, Chapters, Acts, Stories, Novellas, Novels.
This could be a way to overcome a block or over-thinking. It’s always worth getting a few more drops into a bucket.
