I originally wrote this in one of my notebooks as a note-to-self. I needed to remind myself to spend more time making, and less time clicking around on the internet, looking for inspiration, or for things that would validate my ideas or make me feel better, or trying to keep up with what's happening in the big world.
It's better to just get on with the making (whether that's drawing or writing or inventing), to work through ideas by, well, working on them. Easier said than done though. I'm slowly getting better at it. And I now spend way less time reading certain kinds of time-sucking websites, and try to stick to the ones that I truly value and enjoy.
More making, less consuming. Something to shoot for.
