I read this article last night at work and was blown away: The Chase is the Thing, and the Thing is the Chase written by comedian Chris Gethard. It sums up all the yin and yang, the solve et coagula, of the creative process, right in one fantastic essay. Anyone who is in, or interested in, a creative pursuit should read it.

This is how it works, then fails, then works again.
