LIES OF RESISTANCE: WAITING FOR INSPIRATION
LIES OF RESISTANCE: Waiting for inspiration before you start...
An excerpt from the booklet:
I totally understand. It’s so AMAZING when you get struck by the inspiration lightning bolt and you’re almost COMPELLED to go make the thing!
It’s a romantic idea and something that we creatives are always in the search for.
Here’s the thing
Most of the great artists and creatives out there with amazing works to their name? They usually also have a HUGE body of work too. Not because they get struck by lightning that many times BUT because creating is part of a routine. A habit that they DEDICATE themselves to doing almost daily.
It can feel like you’re waiting for the Muse to take her Sweet Ass time to come GRACE you with her presence.
And sometimes, she can be fickle like that and she DOES come and strikes you with the IDEA TO END IDEAS….
However, as Steven Pressfield talks about in his book: The War of Art
The muse needs to find you working in the studio.
Whether that’s actually in front of the easel
Or the computer screen
Or playing your instrument
Or with pen in hand
She needs to see that YOU are putting the work in - only then will she give you the gifts of inspiration.
