Rule 7: Always be working. Theoretically working, questioning and generating. How would it materialize? Even if it could never happen. Write it down, anywhere. Wake up, talk it out. Get it out, work it out.Rule 8: Don't ask anyone of their opinion. You really don't want to hear it. When examining steps in continuation, hold on to the authentic inspiration.
Callisa I am glad you mentioned theoretically working because the question that stems from Rule #7 is how we define work right? At the same time, there is something to be said for setting aside large blocks of time for studio practice. We learn by doing. We understand structure and form by making. All is work though.
Kevin reminded me we should reference the "Learning to Love You More" project by Harrell Fletcher and Miranda July https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Op3wTIXKcEk andhttp://www.learningtoloveyoumore.com
I really enjoyed this piece in particular as it represents itself with a serious title that would suggest strict rules and even potentially some unpleasant rules and then Kent turns the whole mood around and makes the rules into a sort of how to help guide.
