How I Do / What I Do - 040 - Inspiration

Waiting for inspiration to hit is for amateurs.  It’s for wannabes, and cry babies. It’s for a non-professional looking to make excuses.

It’s also for each and every one of us who create for a living.  Some days the tap is on, and some days the tap is off.  What separates the pro from the amateur, is the frequency of the outages, and the ability to force the damn nozzle open.

That doesn’t mean you can always actually do it.
