1 – There are NO rules for Creativity.
When one is creating something from nothing, anything and everything is possible. Rules close the door on potential. Rules say No, Don’t, Can’t, Impossible, and Never. We have no idea what is possible unless we first try everything, including all supposed impossibilities.
When to throw in the towel on finding someone to showcase your creation? Never. The problem is not you – nor is it the towel. It is visibility. Change the color of the towel and you might be surprised at all of those who had no idea you even had a towel…or a novel idea. Turns out the one you had been waving over and over … to anyone who would give you the time of day, inadvertently hypnotized them into a stupor.
People see what they want to see when they are ready to see it. When you have a novel idea and you stop waving your towel to showcase it…you lose… Change color and make bigger waves. Eventually, someone will see you. And soon you will become enlightened to the fact that you no longer have the luxury of being able to stop waving a towel. Now, you see, everyone will expect you to continue to wave your towel… (What about my novel Idea?)
A whole new catagory of creation comes from that silly predicament.
Be that as it may – No one can be you for you … So it is up to you to keep the faith in your creation and see it through. Start waving your colorful towel – that’s why we have so many colors to work with. Remember which one finally works for you but don’t make it a rule to only use that one…
