New blog post, my first in a while:
"Creativity Comes After The Fact"http://gapingvoid.com/2012/01/29/fac/
“In order for me to be to be creative, I’ve got to quit my job, leave my wife and move to India and become an opium addict yada yada yada…”
Actually, no. The way to be creative is to make stuff. You wake up in the morning, have some breakfast, hit the work bench and get on it with it.
You can’t plan for creativity. You can only plan to do the work.
Whether it ends up being “creative” or not, is decided later. Long after you’ve finished the thing and moved on to something else.
