Author Neil Gaiman on creating:
“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
“Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. Youâ€™re doing things youâ€™ve never done before, and more importantly, youâ€™re Doing Something.
“So thatâ€™s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes.Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobodyâ€™s ever made before. Donâ€™t freeze, donâ€™t stop, donâ€™t worry that it isnâ€™t good enough, or it isnâ€™t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
“Whatever it is youâ€™re scared of doing, Do it.”
