Mulling on the page is an artless art form. It is fooling around. It is doodling. It is the way that ideas slowly take shape and form until they are ready to help us see the light. All too often, we try to push, pull, outline, and control our ideas instead of letting them grow organically. The creative process is a process of surrender, not control.
Just finished my third time going through The Artist’s Way. Didn’t stir as much in me this time around, but still find resonance with occasional idea like this one that can be found throughout.
