What would a creator do?

As I read about creators — not just creative types, but people who create momentum and meaning in their lives — I find commonalities.

Now, if I’m stuck somewhere, I’m asking this: What would a creator do?

One is that creators get seriously playful. Twyla Tharp, the choreographer, makes creative play a serious, unbreakable routine. 

If something sucks, if something feels stuck, I’m asking myself, what would a creator aware of her power do? Just what would a creator do here in this situation?

A creator wouldn’t accept it. Oh, they would accept what is in that philosophical way, but a creator would not accept permanency in the situation.

How would a creator act? What would be a creator’s next move?

Creators get seriously playful . . . so why not start there.
