1. Remember who your creative work is for
The people (or person) for whom you are creating the work are part of your creative objective. They are part of your big-time creative dream. They are also integral to the creative work itself, whether it’s a story, reference book, and art work, sculpture, musical arrangement, play or movie. These are the people you are here for and they need to be with you, in your mind’s eye every centimetre of the creative way towards your completed work. They will be your “fan club” and your most valuable critics. Love them. Know them. Honour them and respect them.
