Thinking too much early in the creative process will kill your project.
The trouble for me is that I don’t realize that I’m “over thinking” I just slowly fall back into the habit.
If you want to create something truly unique you can’t allow yourself to be rationale in the genesis of your creation; you have to be wild, you have to set your creativity free. I am discovering that the type of creative questions we ask ourselves are vital to this process.
Any question that pulls on your doubt or skepticism needs to be eliminated, or they will undermine your creativity and leave you paralyzed. Remember “creation” is primarily an act of love, so anything that comes against “your love” needs to be defeated, suppressed or ignored.
Perfect love casts out all fear… so get yourself out of the way, LOVE what you are creating and write without thinking.
