And then, Blanc says we should have fun while we are creating. This is something that makes our creative work engage. The fun of it all spurs creative juices.
This is something I’ve thought about a lot this year. I’ve lost interest in a lot of my creative work. I will blame this on the fact that I stopped enjoying it as my tastes moved away from the work. I am cyphering what exactly I can do about this—how I can get my head and heart back into my creative pursuits. I want that zeal that comes with passionate creativity, yes, but more importantly, right now, I want to have fun while I work. Because it fuels the main goal: doing my best creative work for years and years to come.
Shawn’s book is excellent, of course. It’s right up my alley, and yours. I’m going to read it again and again when I need to refresh my creative pursuits.
