Inspiration strikes one of three ways.
1) Out of no where. But if you wait on this to act, you’ll never get anything done.

3) By treating your creative endeavors like a day job. And showing up every day to work. Eventually inspiration will realize she works for you, and she’ll start showing up on time, too.
