Creator: Patricia Madson Ryan

16 February 2006

I liked this interview with drama coach and author Patricia Madson Ryan. She has interesting things to say about the creative process, and especially about how to give full attention in the current, creative moment. It’s worth a read.

Two things I especially liked:
1. Ryan’s opposition to multitasking. Multitasking is a vice of mine, but I find that I’m happier–and I get more done–when I stick with one thing until it’s finished.
2. The advice to “Be average.” What you are is good enough. You have a lifetime of preparation behind you: now step up and let ‘er rip.
