Creativity Takes Time

posted in: musings | 0

This is something I constantly feel I need to remind myself. I get frustrated when “good ideas” don’t come forth quickly, or when a project or endeavor takes longer to complete to my satisfaction. My inner dialogue tries to tell me it is because I am not good at this, or lack the requisite skill or creative well to draw from. So it’s nice to be reminded that really good creative work takes time, and putting pressure on myself to perform faster undermines my ability to play and experiment as I create.
