Creativity, How Do I Get There


I want to be creative. I want to come up with new and original work. I want to prove I am an artist. These related desires are worthwhile goals. But how does one get there? Where is the roadmap?

If I, or anyone else, tells you how to do it, you have arrived somewhere else. The nature of creative work is that it arises from within yourself. It may not produce immediate results as good as the plans I would provide. But only when you grapple with the seeming vacuum within does your art sprout and grow.
