Creativity starts off messy. Youthful creativity is very messy.
Often starting off randomly, and then as one thinks, and works, its form takes shape.
Over time, when one works their creative muscle over and over, creativity gets easier and less messy, more precise.
That is the challenge of being a creative professional. Exercising your creative muscle sufficiently so that your ability to create is not so random, or messy.
That goes for visual artists, writers, marketers, managers.
Focus, intent, exercise, repetition.
