the creative process

in my last blog i talked a bit about coincidence and how important of a role i feel it plays in the creative process. well, i recently started http://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gifworking on my next project, and the coincidences have already been hitting me over the head...so much that it's a bit scary for as early in the process that i'm in. but i take that all as a good sign...and today, i found this speech that Amy Tan gave at the TED conference, and it amazed me. Amy Tan is the author of such beloved books as "The Joy Luck Club", "The Kitchen God's Wife" and "The Hundred Secret Senses", and her words have stuck a chord...it's how i feel while working in the process, and when i don't feel it, i know that the piece i'm working on will not become what it's supposed to be. that's when i know that i have to put it down and let it breathe. anyway, enough said...i'll let her speak for me...just click on the link...
