IS CONSTANT CREATIVITY POSSIBLE IN A NOISY DIGITAL WORLD?
So much of our culture is imitation. The generic nature of franchises, sequels and stereotypes can zap us of our MOJO. It's as if creativity is a rare, weird, random trait mostly possessed by artists who are already dead. People just re-post and repeat life daily. So is the MUSE just a fleeting romantic notion or can we shack up with her as our permanent roommate. It’s not easy but luring and keeping the Muse at the kitchen table, the desk, the studio bench or the stage is possible. IT’S JUST NOT EASY. But I am doing it so I know you can too. That’s why I literally wrote the book on it. I am concerned about living in a dull world with boring repetitiveness and predictability as the conformist norm. So I need you.
