Destroy in order to create.

…When you get a new notebook, rip out the first few pages, stamp on it, get dirt on the edges. This is an exercise an art-teacher friend of mine makes her students do with their sketchbooks. It is to say: this sketchbook is not holy. It is not being created to be shown in the Louvre. It is a place of work and practice, where a lot of mistakes will be made.

This is a very good thing to keep in mind if you’re a writer, artist, or simply anyone who wants to get a little creative. All hail creativity! =)
