Recently, I watched a TED talk given by Brene Brown. If you have 20 minutes, her research on vulnerability, living wholeheartedly and creativity is worth your time.
She also has a follow up talk here (another 20 mins):
The entire point of me writing here was to share the process of getting my creative brain working again. I have to admit the idea of having anyone reading about my process was scary. I worried ‘What might you think? Where is this going really?’
By the way, I realized I have no idea. Subsequently, I thought ‘Eek! They’ll find out that I don’t know what I’m doing!’
In doing this bit of writing and reflection, I’ve realized I’m allowing myself to feel the vulnerability that comes with the creative process.
