Embrace your creative clutter
I just read this thought provoking article by Adam Singer called “Embrace Your Creative Clutter”. He shares his thoughts on how having creative chaos, be it in music, writing, or any other form of art, can lead to unique and unexpected results. Adam talks about his stack of books with sticky notes, his folder of music projects, and nearly 200 potential articles in his drafts section. He believes that the act of getting raw bits of ideas into something concrete is intrinsically cathartic, and even if you don't return to them, they hold potential value. Embracing creative clutter allows us to evolve as artists and refine our work over time. It's worth a read, especially if you're into creative endeavors.
