To be sure, there's nothing wrong with creating on a whim. There's nothing wrong with being creative whenever the mood strikes ie whenever you feel it. There's also nothing wrong with Jack Kerouac-esque stream of consciousness creativity.
These Conversations For Transformation however just don't exist in that order of things. They're an experiment in giving my word I'll be creative - that is to say they're an experiment in committed creativity, which includes the commitment to being creative on time. They're written and published intentionally twice a week in what you could say is scheduled creativity.
The question is: is it possible to be creative on schedule? Is it productive to schedule occasions for being creative? Indeed, is it even possible to deliver on any promise to be creative?
So far, nine hundred and fifty one Conversations For Transformation later, what this experiment reveals is not only is it productive to schedule occasions for being creative, but that scheduled creativity may actually produce more creativity than "on a whim" creativity, more creativity than "whenever I feel it" creativity, more creativity than stream of consciousness creativity.
