No one just knows how to be an artist. How can we create more often, finish sooner, and be happier as creatives?
Interesting topic! I read about a ceramics class where the teacher divided the class into two, and one half would be graded by quality, and the other by quantity. The quality group had to create 1 perfect pot. The quantity group had to create as many as possible. At the end of the semester, the quantity group had created the best pots because they weren't focused on perfection but just on creating.
I need a day of rest or two before I'm recharged enough to be creative (an introvert, not minding social isolation at all). Then I need a week or two to dive in. Research inspires my creativity & I tend to spend too long on that. Time is a problem as writing is an avocation. O, for a Muse of Fire that would ascent the brightest heaven of invention.
I feel like my creative process changes in some way with every project, is that common? Do you think it'll always evolve with every next project (or even rewrite of the same project)
What would you like me to answer first about creative process?
