Here’s a great short film clip of Jack White talking about inspiration, the rewards of having limitations and the act of creativity. We too often think that for creativity to flourish we need to have everything in place, planned, ready, perfect. The truth more than often alot more prosaic. Hard work and limitations are all we need. That is where the magic happens.
Inspiration and work ethic — they ride right next to each other…. Not every day you’re gonna wake up and the clouds are gonna part and rays from heaven are gonna come down and you’re gonna write a song from it. Sometimes, you just get in there and just force yourself to work, and maybe something good will come out.
Any thoughts on the matter?
