John Cleese on Creativity

I spent some of yesterday getting a new series of strips written. I’m over the 20 mark of approved strip concepts at this point and it’s never been so easy to write. I was on Webcomics.com yesterday and listened to John Cleese at a speaking engagement talking about the process of creativity:

There are some very good points here. The ultimate catch-22 is the concept that people who are hopeless at what they do lack the skills to assess that, so how do you know if you don’t know what you’re doing? The answer is you don’t, you don’t have the ability to tell! So that probably applies to 99.9% of us. The key to success is not letting the high probability that you don’t know what you’re doing stop you from trying.
