In a discussion about creativity, this quote by cartoonist Scott Adams kept popping up in my head:
'Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes,
art is knowing which ones to keep.'
To make mistakes, one must work through fear, perfectionism, vulnerability, trust and other belief patterns that keep us from jumping head on into the process of trial and error. But it's in the error that we find the most original creative solutions and ideas, it's in the least expected - the unknowns - that we come up with something NEW.
Here's to making mistakes.
In April 2020, while experiencing her first ever global pandemic, Tamar Pelzig pledged to write something every day, even if it's only a word, so she welcomed to the world a daily blog to keep her creative writing wheels rolling.
