What do you feel is the most important part of the creative process?


Terry Replies:

The most important part of the creative process is getting through it! Every new book takes about a year. So when you start out, you are looking twelve months down the road. That's a long time to do anything. Even if you are excited when you start, it gets old and you get bored. The temptation to cut corners is huge. So you have to remind yourself that you won't be happy if you come back and find that you didn't do the best you could. It really is a mind game that you play with yourself. So, how about perseverance as the single most important aspect of creating?
