Getting It Down
"Art is not about thinking something up. It is the opposite - getting something down."
Most writers and artists have no trouble with the idea part of the equation. We can hardly help thinking things up. The trouble is, far too many impediments arise to keep us from giving these ideas form.
But unless we kick our way through these roadblocks and actually do the grunt work of creation, we aren't artists at all, merely dime-a-dozen dreamers.
So with that, I'm waving goodbye and getting back to work.
