‘Write It. Shoot It. Publish It. Crochet It, Sauté It, Whatever, MAKE’

Sometimes it’s easier to get caught up in the details without bothering to actually complete a project, but filmmaker Joss Whedon’s quote reminds us that it doesn’t really matter what your creative ideas are — just that you attempt to do them.

The quote originally comes from a Q&A with Hulu viewers:

I recently read an interview with you in Mother Jones magazine. “Geek God” I think was the term they used for you. How do you feel about your success? What advice do you like to give other “geeks” with good ideas? — Jennifer Russell

If you have a good idea, get it out there. For every idea I’ve realised, I have 10 I sat on for a decade till someone else did it first. Write it. Shoot it. Publish it. Crochet it, sauté it, whatever. MAKE.

It’s pretty simple advice really, and it’s nice to know that even super productive people like Joss Whedon have sat on good ideas for too long.
