L.09.5: Jeff’s Five Rules for Creative Conduct

1. Don’t listen to your Inner Critic … not until you’re in the revision stage, anyway.
2. Use your Sacred Space … could be a certain time of day, a physical space like a cottage in the back yard, or even a mental space or state. Nothing “outside” gets in (finances, relationship problems, job worries, Facebook, cell phone, etc.).
3. Don’t waste a lot of time poring over stuff you’ve already done. Focus on generating new material.
4. Always, always, always back up what you do. External hard drives are good.
5. Create for yourself. Don’t try to please others.
