It is you, not me… A Great Ted talk

There is nothing scarier than the beginning of a creative process where the canvas is blank and everything is possible. Will you succeed again, will you deliver the desired outcome?  Elizabeth Gilbert talks about Muses or similar concepts. Before the renaissance, people believed that creativity came from without, not within. From Muses, genies, spirits. That takes the pressure off you and puts it onto an external force. I like that idea. I also think it has a lot to do with the environment you are in, the people you are working with and so forth.  But then again, you could think about those as the spirits :)
