Not everything that gets written is gold, far from it. One of the most enjoyable things about being creative is exploring and playing with ideas and having fun with them. Don’t limit yourself to one type of expression, let the expression choose its own form. You never know when something is going to become something else. Like that piece you think is going to be a serious poem about dealing with life that turns into lyrics to a silly pop song (Really? WTF?!), or an idea for a painting that works into a sculpture, or a book idea into a trash can full of burning paper. Sometimes, letting the idea be what it is, can be more rewarding than having it fit the vision we had when we started.
Let yourself have fun, play with ideas and don’t be afraid to fail and move on!
