The myth about Inspiration!

Arts Posted 2 months ago

As an artist, I used to believe that creative inspiration is something that comes to you when you least expect it. It strikes like lightning, that perfect idea, you have to wait in anticipation for it, it is fleeting, like a ghost, a mystery. You just have to wait in ideal meditation for it to finally grace your mind with its presence. But I couldn’t have been more wrong. The problem with such an approach is that it is unreliable. You never know anything for sure when you consider inspiration to be like that, it is undependable.
