Nobody Will Stop You From Creating

“Nobody will stop you from creating. Do it tonight. Do it tomorrow. That is the way to make your soul grow… The kick of creation is the act of creating, not anything that happens afterward. I would tell all of you watching this screen: Before you go to bed, write a four line poem. Make it as good as you can. Don’t show it to anybody. Put it where nobody will find it. And you will discover that you have your reward.”
– Kurt Vonnegut

  1. Nice, but is it always important not to show anybody?

  2. Good question, I would say no. Or else no one would be able to enjoy pieces of art which would be kind of a loss.

    This very minute I wrote a little poem. And I think the idea with this is to have a task most people can accomplish. And then realize it gives you something although you don’t have the intention to show out to anyone. I liked it & I am not a poet.

    By the way, Tina, thank you very much for this blog – i found so many beautiful things here!
