Creativity is work. A streak of inspiration is an accumulation of work, of a life spent reading, practicing, observing, and playing. Then, comes the refining of that inspiration. Editing, shaping, and otherwise guiding.
Creativity is not for the lazy. Artists are hard workers, no matter what their preferred medium is. Sweat. Inspiration exists but only in that context.
Think about this as Monday approaches. When you stare at the blank canvas or paper and wonder what magic is needed to fill it brilliantly, remember that. Remember you’ve a job to do.
Your creative gift won’t dig out those brilliant ideas without occasional (or frequent) anguish. Using it isn’t magic but you can do it.
Work hard, my friends.
