Slingshot Readers,

We NEED your support. More specifically, the author of this article needs your support. If you've been enjoying our content, you know that a lot of work goes into our stories and although it may be a work of passion, writers gotta eat. If just half our readers gave 1 DOLLAR a month, one measly dollar, we could fund all the work from StuChiu, DeKay, Emily, Andrew (and even Vince). If you contribute 5 DOLLARS a month, we invite you to join our Discord and hang with the team. We wouldn't bother you like this if we didn't need your help and you can feel good knowing that 100% of your donation goes to the writers. We'd really appreciate your support. After all, you're what makes all this happen. Learn more


Chiu on This
A short and regular opinion blast from Stephen Chiu

I thought I’d put this out there to see how others do their writing process. In my case I do all the research first with Vods, interviews and analysis. I then think about it and organize it in my head (actually I do this at all times when not spectating a game. Walking, eating, sitting at traffic lights, etc. I think about every player, every tournament, every game I follow at all times and every angle I can think of with every piece of information I know to see what angle I like). Eventually, when I do get down to actually writing, I focus to the point where I forget who I am, where I am or how I got here. I focus completely on the article and at some point I come out the other side hours later.

This happened earlier today when I was writing a GuardiaN piece and 4 hours later after I woke back up the real world, 4 hours had gone by and I had to reorient myself back to reality.
