Often times an entire, fully completed blog post ‘arrives’ in my head in a matter of a few seconds.
Sometimes it will be several.
That’s one reason why I always walk around with a pen & paper, plus have an audio voice note app and text capturing app on my phone’s home screen.
In the moment, if I can just capture a few key words, like the title or subject, then later I will remember the whole thing.
However, if I don’t jot anything at all down soon, and let the day pass, then it’s usually forgotten. (Not always though.)
Here’s the difference between being creative and not being creative:
Everyone is creative.
Everyone has ideas.
But at some point, even if it’s later that day, week, or month, I have to sit down and type the whole thing out. That part takes work.
So the idea is only half. Or perhaps much less, about 5%.
You are creative too.
You just have to get your idea onto paper, or canvas, or audio, or fabric, or wherever, and show it to someone.
