The fragile moment of creativity
The secret of creativity lies in that fragile moment when you like what you just did, or you don't.
If you enjoy it, you will continue, and build up a set of alternatives. And it is not important any more if the first idea was good or bad.
But you had to enjoy creating it.
We all have been creative
Oh no! I am not talented.
Draws 1st line
That is nice. But we can't draw. Just type.
And don't have time for 'years of education'.
How can we see and like our ideas?
But people stop after the 1st try.
