There Are No Rules, It Is Just You and Your Ideas
That is an exciting and scary idea in one breath. No rules? Just me?
When we get down to bare bones of all creative expression, then everything that remains is just that.
You and your idea.
Isn’t that promising? Or is it just scary?
No really, let that sink in for just a moment! If it was this simple we would create so much more instead of being held back by our fears.
Heck, most people don’t even start.
The following quote says it all:
“The beautiful part of writing is that you don’t have to get it right the first time unlike, say, brain surgery.”
— Robert Cormier (1925–2000)
Let’s take ourselves lightly and just play!
So there we are. Stop waiting for something to give you the green light to start creating what you love.
It doesn’t have to be perfect. It just has to be you. Send your stuff out into the world. We definitely need it.
What is the worst that could happen?
