“Naturally kids just create. But as they’ve gotten older, I’ve had to teach my kids how to be kids again, and it works wonders for them to hear it. As a kid, you don’t know anything–you don’t have to know anything. You just have to start. As you get older you start to think, What if I fail? What if I can’t do it? So you reteach them what they already know: You don’t have to do anything. Just show up. You’re not going to know what you’ll draw until it’s done. All you have to do is show up with a pen in your hand and a blank piece of paper. But unless you pick up the pen and start, it’s not going to come to you. You’re not going to just dream it up. You have to start the process.” – Robert Rodriguez
