Who’s in charge?
Is it the creative forces that pull you when inspiration strikes? Or is it your willpower that makes it happen even when “Creativity’s presence” isn’t around?
What if creativity is more like a practice, and the only way to get better at it is to go through all the bad renditions, all the tacky, cheesy, unglamorous, trashy ideas?
What if mystifying it’s nature does the opposite from what we want, and pulls us further away from trying?
Our relationship with creativity doesn’t get better when we wait for inspiration to strike.
There’s a confrontation involved, and it requires us to face it regularly.
