Acid42's insight:

XTC leader Andy Partridge on songwriting and creative retching

XTC leader Andy Partridge on songwriting and creative retching | MusicProduction | Scoop.it

AVC: Does songwriting get easier or tougher with experience?
AP: It's tougher, because you end up dry-retching. You don't have a lot left. I actually think the creative process is finite, and I'm wondering whether I've retched everything up. Because it's like vomiting or shitting. People ask, "Do you listen to your own stuff?" Rarely. What do you want to return to your own vomit for? You got it out to get it out. If I get really, really drunk, on the edge of passing out, I might lie on the floor and put some music on. And just before I pass out, I say, "This is fucking great, they were brilliant, that band. I love this band." Then I'm gone. I can get over the vomity barrier if I get ludicrously drunk.

Understanding The Creative Process
Lifehacker Australia
One of the brain's many mysteries is creativity — how exactly do we come up with new ideas?
Acid42's insight:

Excerpt: "And then once [you have the idea], you’re not done, you’re not creative yet. So that’s why it’s really important for this last stage of the creative process — verification — where you use these executive processes or critical thinking skills [and] think about your audience and you really craft the message so it’s best received by people. Because some the best creative ideas of all time can easily be lost because they’re not packaged in the right way or not consumable."
