“The seeds of your next work lie embedded
in the imperfections of your current piece.”
Here I am – still struggling up the mountainside. Living the “one step forward, two steps back” approach to creativity. Trying, testing, rejecting … trying again.
My online friend Wanda, of Tidbits & Treasures, had this to say in response to my post “The Plateau”: “I prefer to think of abandoned projects … as the foundation for new explorations.” I like that idea.
It’s ALL valuable, isn’t it? Tthe rejects, the pieces that don’t work, the throwaways. It’s the time spent creating, regardless of the result.
Sowing seeds for the next piece. Building a foundation.
For a results-oriented perfectionist like myself – a valuable life lesson.
