If you’ve ever wanted to make something, ever wanted to be a little bit creative, even just to dabble — this is for you.
This is what you need to know if you’ve ever wanted to create, but find yourself not doing it because life gets in the way.
That happens to all of us. We believe we don’t have time, or energy, or skills, or ideas. But that might be beside the point.
If there’s something you want to create—a book, a song, a website, a business, a painting—that you aren’t creating, I bet you have a really good reason.
You have too much going on (work, commute, family responsibilities, mild terror), or not enough of something (time, money, expertise, cabins in the woods). You don’t know how to start, or your setup isn’t right, or you’ll get to it later.
I tell myself all of these.
Some days I sit down to write and suddenly nothing seems so important as the sink full of dishes in the other room, or the fact that my toenails might need trimming.
