As writers and creatives, we start pieces, we refine projects, we pour our love into our work and we don’t know how they will turn out. But we have to start and we have to trust.
During the act of creation, on a piece by piece basis, we trust that somehow, a combination of our thoughts, imagination, and random inspiration may align in a beautiful, unique, and complete way.
On a macro basis, we trust that the things we work on will be a part of our creative journey that leads somewhere. Pieces we throw away, projects we abandon, poems we find had nothing behind it, they are all as much a part of our growth/development as the pieces we finish and want to show the world.
Creativity and creation are ultimately acts of trust.
