“Don’t wait for things to be perfect before you share them with others. Show early and show often. It’ll be pretty when we get there, but it won’t be pretty along the way.”Ed Catmull, Creativity, Inc
This makes me feel like I should be sharing my novel with someone. I don’t mind sharing early at all. I’m just so into it that I don’t wanna get side tracked from my progress. I wonder if this depends on your environment. You can’t show your unfinished work to just anyone. I mean you could but people without vision have a hard time respecting the drafting process. Heck, even I have a hard time knowing what feedback to share.
When you read his book Creativity Inc, you’ll learn that Ed has learned by years of experience how to build a team and how to manage successful creative environments. I guess I should work on creating a space for myself and a few others where I can share my drafts and discuss my thoughts and ideas as I go.
