‘The Void,’ and why understanding it leads to our best creative work
Here it is again. That wave of discomfort.
It starts like a rippling in my chest, and then a ping in my throat.
I couldn’t describe the emotion because it is composed of several. Frustration; boredom; anger; restlessness; confusion, and borderline despair.
I’m also sleepy.
This can’t be a good start, can it?
Well, yes it can, because I’ve been here many times before.
Completing anything worth doing always started with moments like these. Many times, this ‘feeling’ led to some of my best work.
