Stop treating your creativity like its a tired, old, unhappy marriage and start regarding it with the fresh eyes of a passionate lover. Even if you have only fifteen minutes a day in a stairwell alone with your creativity, take it
Go hide in that stairwell and ‘make out with your art.’
Sneak off and have an affair with your most creative self. Lie to everyone about where your are actually going on your lunch break.
Pretend you are travelling somewhere when secretly you are retreating in order to paint, or to write poetry.
Conceal it from your family and friends, whatever it is you are up to.
Slip away from everyone else at the party and go off to dance alone with your ideas in the dark.Wake yourself up in the middle of the night in order to be alone with your inspiration, while nobody is watching.You don’t need that sleep right now ; You can give it up.
What else you are willing to give up in order to be alone with your beloved?
Don’t think of it all as burdensome; ‘think of it all as sexy’. _______________________________
