It’s important to accept whatever creative voice is in your head and to ignore the voices that suggest it’s not good enough, or not relevant, or a waste of time. Whatever the idea is, if it’s compelling, get it down in some form that you have access to later. Any book can be edited, any song workshopped, and the final product of the seed you “rescue” is frequently going to make the initial effort of writing something down worth your while.
If there is no voice in your head, it may be that it’s there and you don’t hear it. Perhaps the voice is speaking and you’ve long ago written it off because people in your life told you to ignore it or suppress it. If that’s the case, it’s essential you find some way to learn how your inner voice speaks to you, through meditation, workshops, or even therapy.
