Everybody creates differently – for me, I often start with an idea, usually vague. As it begins to develop, I’ll arrive at a point where I’m not sure where things are going. I hit a wall…
At this point,there are two ways to move ahead – and both of them are good.
The first one is to simply keep going, letting your subconscious guide you. Don’t second guess if you go this route – you’ll go down some blind alleys, but eventually end up somewhere unexpected and interesting.
The other option is to set it down for a period of time and work on something else, occasionally thinking about it. What’s happening here is that your subconscious mind has the project cooking on a low simmer – you’ll know when it’s done ‘cuz the answer will suddenly appear.
The main point here is this: You don’t need to know where things are going.
Something greater than yourself will let you know.
