Welcome to the new WCT, and this week I wanted to bring into its own thread a topic that's been touched upon in various other places in recent days on CCS.
That is, how we gather inspiration, and how we then let it percolate, or not, before we create something from it.
So, the three questions to consider this week are:
1. What ways do you actively seek and gather inspiration? Do you need to be in a certain frame of mind? Do you go to certain places?
2. When you have a new idea you feel excited about, how long do you need to let it simmer and percolate in your mind before you start consciously working on developing it?
3. What are the advantages of giving ideas time to percolate and evolve before rushing to make something of them?
Looking forward to hearing your experiences and thoughts.
Where is Michael talking about this?
Interesting angle about your children and how they've enabled (forced?) you to be more flexible with your art time.
"..........than the rest of the time when I'm fitting in with other people's timetables and needs. "
.......this is what I was talking about, that Michael has a forum discussion about, as well as ponderings in his podcasts.........very interesting, how/why/where/when the rhythms occur and how to weave them into your day or not..........along with the creating and getting your important work done.
.......He's just begun discussing this.........join us?
