On Creativity

img_3407The fellas over at GFDA know what’s up. Thanks for the motivating wallpaper. My wife and friends make fun of me for cleanliness of my home screen and for the labels of the folders. I know, I’m a huge nerd.

Anyway, I’m not sure what to write here because I don’t want to sound preachy. The thing is, it would really be impossible for me to sound preachy because when it comes to creativity, I have no idea what the fuck I’m talking about. Like, I shouldn’t even be talking.

I don’t really see myself as a creative. That said, I know I’m creative, I’m just not sure how to find said creativity.

I recently wrote a piece for Mash Stories on productivity. For the piece, I did some research on the habits of successful writers to try to find out what makes them productive.

The most common answer? Write every day.

For someone like me, an amateur (wannabe) writer, that advice is crucial. It’s so freaking important to just sit in front of the computer and write. Even if no one ever sees it.

To that, I have been updating my blog every single day. Again, it’s more about the habit than anything else. I don’t really expect the content to be top notch but I also don’t want it to suck (if it sucks, let me know).

Also, I’m trying to train myself that it doesn’t make any sense to be afraid of writing. Who cares if I suck and who cares if no one is reading it. When I’m a rich and famous writer and look back on these posts, I’ll surely cringe AND it is true that no one is reading them (for those of you that do: HIGH FIVE).

On a side note, I went to the dentist this morning and left before I could pass a message along to the Doc and Hygienist. Here it is: FUCK YOU.

I’m totally, 100% kidding. They actually did a fantastic job and I feel great. They also put me on to Colgate Total and got me hooked up with a mouthguard for pretty cheap, since I grind my teeth like a fucking maniac. So thanks Refresh Dental. You guys rock! See you in three weeks when you stick a drill in my mouth.
