The more that I work on this project, the more I understand how creativity works. We are told that creativity flows through artists like blood and can be pulled from at any moment. While many of us wish this to be true, often we’re left with an empty mind when we first approach the blank canvas.
Instead, inspiration and creativity flow like an unreliable water pipe. Some days we have fresh, clean water with high pressure, and other days we’re stuck dry. That’s why it is important to bottle that water when you have it. Write down your ideas and use them when you need it.
When you are feeling incredibly creative, usually you don’t have enough energy to complete all of your ideas. There’s too much thought and only so little time in the day. If you want to be successful, you have to find a way to spread your creativity.
