‘Where do you find inspiration?’, people ask.
They desperately look at their blank screen, their lump of clay, their pristine canvas.
It’s like they’re searching for an extremely rare, shy creature.
‘Where to begin?’, they whisper.
But beginning is never the problem.
The problem is the idea that somewhere in time a sublime and utterly impressive piece has to be delivered.
The problem is the thought that in order to create something, you have to be sure that it will be amazing, before you even start.
The problem is the notion that creation has to go somewhere special.
Creativity is the innate movement of life, the ESSENCE of life, not a special treasure you have to find somewhere like a true Indiana Jones, not a thing you have to earn, or something that is bestowed upon you by some holy power, one day (you know the one).
Inspiration is nothing more than the art of beginning.
And beginning is just that: you start.
How difficult can it be?
Like the famous philosopher Nike once said:
Just do it.
