inspiration

So, I’ve been spending the afternoon typesetting little pieces of text fillers that we use in the phone book when I came across this one…

Are you waiting for inspiration?

Deciding you are going to sit down to do some kind of work is often the hardest part of getting a task accomplished. Once you do sit down and begin, often something remarkable takes place, says Steven Pressfield (www.stevenpressfield.com) in The War of Art. A whole sequence of events is set into motion by that one act.

Pressfield says Somerset Maugham was once asked whether he wrote on a schedule or only when struck by inspiration. “I write only when inspiration strikes,” he replied. “Fortunately it strikes every morning at nine o’clock sharp.” 

According to this all I need to do is set a time to make art and then do it. I am going to try. I have been doing better. I did manage to make some masks for our company’s New Year’s Eve Masquerade ball…
