I ran across a cool quote by William Goldman (he wrote the Princess Bride) in his book Which Lie Did I Tell?:
"I don't understand the creative process. Actually, I make a concerted effort not to understand it. I don't know what it is or how it works but I am terrified that one green morning it will decide not to work anymore, so I have always given it as wide a bypass as possible"
I think a tractor-trailer overturned on my creative bypass today. Let's read some weblogs for inspiration.
