The limits of creativity
I love finding ideas, so I try to find methods to push myself… more ideas, better ideas, whatever that means.
I like using a sketchbook to get ideas out of my head. Usually sketching helps, so now I made a deal with myself: every day, for at least an hour, I have sit somewhere without internet and sketch for an hour.
So far it has helped a bit, but it is also very daunting. After all, this is the era of self publishing. You don’t need a movie studio to make a film, you don’t need a publisher to share your novel with the world. Just put it on the internet.
The tools are cheaper and easier every day, and the only limit is your own motivation and talent.
This is great, but is also very intimidating.
When I sit and I have a pen in my hand but there are no ideas, it’s not a great feeling.
When the ideas do come, it makes me happy.
