The spark of the creative process begins with inspiration. Inspiration strikes like a lightning bolt during a summer storm. It is a madness that sends into a fever pitch of activity. When inspiration strikes we must utilize it to our advantage.
Inspiration has no concept of time. It may strike at any moment of the day. Day or night. It could be during the middle of the night. Or in the middle of your current work day. Inopportune times that may hinder the creative process of inspiration.
Don’t fret about it when this occurs. Take a few minutes to jot down your ideas. Make sure that you grab the essence of the idea. When you have the free time, you’ll be able to recollect and continue upon that inspiration.
If you are granted a moment when inspiration hits and you have the time, be grateful. For there is nothing stopping you from giving it your all. Give it hell and do not stop. Paint, write, design, whatever it takes for you to act upon that inspiration.
Creativity doesn’t have a schedule. So it is essential you utilize your time when it does come. You never know what may happen when inspiration hits. Sparking a creative process that could change the course of your life.
