How To Be Creative
Posted 10 March 2012 - 06:07 PM
Creativity is a spark. It can be excruciating when we're rubbing two rocks together and getting nothing. And it can be intensely satisfying when the flame catches and a new idea sweeps around the world.
For the first time in human history, it's becoming possible to see how to throw off more sparks and how to make sure that more of them catch fire. And yet, we must also be honest: The creative process will never be easy, no matter how much we learn about it. Our inventions will always be shadowed by uncertainty, by the serendipity of brain cells making a new connection.
Every creative story is different. And yet every creative story is the same: There was nothing, now there is something. It's almost like magic.

For a moment two days ago, while I was exercising, I realized I knew I had to write something down because people would find it highly helpful if I were to share it. However, I stubbornly put it in the back of my mind for later, and lost it afterwards. Currently, I have no idea even the premise of what I was going to write. If the meds do that, and if they change me from a person who is open to the world to a person who is only interested in herself, perhaps I need to change my thinking.
I believe that perhaps creativity can come to me in a more controlled fashion if I am able to allow myself to forget about being medicated in the first place and that there are foreign contaminants in my brain. I need to convince myself that they are there to carefully equilibriate something which is out of balance. I need to convince myself that they are helping. Only then can I open my mind to the world and be truly creative. This is my goal.
