No one likes to feel bewildered. I don’t and I’m sure you don’t either. But disliking that feeling and avoiding it at all costs are two different things. An everyday creative person makes an effort to embrace bewilderment, even though she dislikes the feeling, because she knows that she has no other good choice. Every creative journey is marked by patches and even long stretches of bewilderment as, disoriented and upset, you realize that you don’t know what to do next. These patches of not knowing just can’t be avoided, unless you refuse to create.”
