That Amazing 5% is Inspiration Feeling (Comic #232)

In the original version the second Thing says "yeah" but I decided that was unnecessary clutter.

They say that many creative endeavors are 5% inspiration (or 1% depending on which made up statistics you use) and 95% perspiration.

But not all percentages are made equal. Yay for honoring and celebrating those precious moments of muse-flash and yay for visualizing those moments when they're not around! Chase that feeling ^_^

In other news for a motivated and happy new year the creator of the Things really likes Kamikaze Kitten's blog post about motivation. Love the sensation of learning and finding new edges, love the celebration of diversity in motivation.


You know that feeling when you're working on a small idea...

And the idea blossoms out in unexpected ways that are big and new and exciting?

And it seems totally possible and impossible and it just feels so good to be following the energy of an idea that WANTS to be something more. You could be on the edge of something marvelous, or not and you can't tell because the idea is so unexpected AND so obvious you can't believe you haven't thought of it before.

The idea is so uncertain and chaseable and connecting that it makes existence feel more alive.You can't help but smile and wonder what you can make happen if you dance down this intriguing rabbit hole, because today everything feels possible.
