In the previous post, I wrote about the routine, schedule of famous writers, painters. Now I am playing a devil’s advocate: Do we need a timetable for creativity? Doesn’t creativity come in a burst at any random intervals via various events? Is it not like throwing the challenge to our mind and subconscious part of us doing the rest?
One of the examples that come to my mind is Issac Newton’s relativity theory after apple falling on him. Another one is Archimedes in a bathtub finding the principle of the buoyant force. There could be numerous others.
I feel creativity requires hard work, but it is beyond the boundaries of a timetable or schedule. It is free-flowing like air or river.
