It’s a Hard Rock Life

CorporateIntel

The book is rock and roll, the process of performing it no less so. I have an eclectic process I use to write a novel. I usually have a protagonist identified and a very rough roadmap of a plot that will deliver that character’s arc, but even before I begin the detailed process of outlining, I start a page of ideas I call “collecting.” I wanted to explore the necessity of constantly starting over in life as a creative process.

Creativity and Courage

CorporateIntel

There is a lot of substance in Roosevelt’s reflection, but the essence for me comes back to the notion of the creative process, whether in business or government or science or art, what it means to put oneself in the public light with new ideas. Creativity is not only exhausting, it’s messy. It is much easier to be a critic than an innovator, in that the innovator approaches creativity with self-critique an implicit part of the process, a means, not an end.

Do You Want My Opinion?

If you’ve partaken in-depth of the creative process, you know they aren’t the same. The creative process is laden with setbacks, but each time we find a nugget of corrective action, we can improve. That’s what makes the creative process both daunting and healing. With my third book now in first draft and about to go into the editing process, I find my love of words never more pronounced, but never more conflicted.
