“Bereshit bara…” thus the book of Genesis opens. “In the beginning…”
Creating is a daunting task. But it’s also full of joy and meaning and mystery.
How do Creatives make the first move, write the first word, fling the first brush stroke, peel back the first layer of clay? What inspires them, what moves them, what drives them?
These are questions I wrestle with every day. Beginning anew with a blank page or a fresh idea, battling fatigue and weariness and distractions and discouragement and lack of motivation. I want to know how other creative people create and about the forces that drive them.
I’ve asked 13 writers to share with us what gives them the courage to create. They are writers, authors, teachers, professors, doctors, waitresses, pastors, painters, musicians, editors, mothers, fathers, wives, husbands. I just like to call them Creatives.
The series is intended to be a conversation, a meditation, and an inspiration.
