And Prana Writers is fortunate because it has two … maybe more.
What am I talking about? I’m talking about the Choinski Factor…
When you have someone who will say, ‘I can do that!’, whether they’d done it before in their lifetime, or not, and it is done superbly – that’s the Choinski factor. The way the Choinski element operates is that, whether it is the first time through, or they are seasoned professionals, whatever it is they are doing will be done to the highest quality imaginable. In fact , I suspect the way Choinski principle triggers is that the less experience, the more energies are injected – and with incredible outcomes. That’s when you really know it’s the Choinski Factor at play.
Here are some examples of the Choinski factor at work with ‘Undertow':
– Slush wrangling
– Interior layout
– Exterior layout
– Author spotlights
I do think one should be selective in deploying the Choinski factor. The energies at play should only be directed at the most important jobs – the mission critical stuff. You don’t want it wasted. I’ve actually heard it said that a team imbued with the Choinski factor is like a team with super powers. We’ve certainly seen evidence of that here with the anthology. All I can say is ‘Thank God for the Choinski factor.’
The Choinski factor was brought to Gold Coast Anthology by Penner and Jasmine Choinski.
