“Without the time and effort invested in getting ready to create, you can be hit by the thunderbolt and it’ll just leave you stunned.”
There’s been a lot research into what creativity is in recent years.
Presumably it’s an attempt to understand where creativity comes from, so that we can make ourselves more creative.
I’m not a professor of an illustrious university. I’m not a researcher or a well known author.
But I think I have an idea how to help you become more creative:
Are you ready?
Show up and practice.
Whether you feel like it or not.
I hope that’s not too disappointing. I also hope it doesn’t sound glib. I mean it sincerely and I really want to help you by passing on what I manage to glean from my own work in the trenches.
I really do believe that this idea will not only enhance your creativity, but rescue your artistic self esteem, help you through procrastination and eventually help you become the artist you know you have inside you, if you could only find a way to bring her out.
I don’t expect everyone to agree with me.
Truth be told, I expect most people to disagree. The idea of the mysterious and unfathomable creative muse allowing us privileged glimpses into a higher realm is deeply entrenched in our cultural identity.
It would be lovely if it were true, but it’s a fairy tale.
If you’re not convinced, please watch this short video. Let me try to give you something that I think will work far more effectively for you than the traditional, Romantic idea of being touched by the muse.
Something that really will help you be more creative in everything you do.
