Creative Cogeneration

In energy engineering parlance, when one major power plant generates enough heat (otherwise waste energy) to drive a few turbines more, they call it "cogeneration."

That's what I've got with the Chiles book. So far it's generated:

1) A Two Act play which I'd say is about 2/3 complete in draft form.

2) The idea to revise and extend a poem I wrote years ago.

3) The idea for a short-story.

Moments like this convey the creative process at its finest.
