Conviction

Why create? Is out of retaliation? Is it to impart something positive or motivate reform? Is it to convey something much deeper and larger than ourselves? Encourage? Provide hope? Whatever the objective, consider the following:

How do you create? Do you create with attitude? Do you create with anger? Do you create with sadness? Do you create with confidence?

There is no right way other than our work has to carry a purpose to inform and allow access to the idea. Keep in mind, the emotion is just as powerful a tool as the idea itself. The emotion is the connection between the idea and the idea materialized. You can not fashion a song, book, or painting without emotion. If you tried, it wouldn’t be very convincing.

Recognize your intent, your need to be intellectually honest, and allow the emotion to function so that the idea materializes with as much conviction as the emotion itself.
