The ‘messy’ creative mind

I ran across this video interview with New Yorker writer and “The Tipping Point” author Malcolm Gladwell. This is part of his answer to the question, “What advice do you have for aspiring writers?”

I don’t think he’s trying to say that you need to be messy all the time, but rather that it’s OK to embrace a little chaos in a world that is constantly forcing us to organize the floods of information and ideas coming our way. A little distraction, forcing yourself to confront the uncomfortable can spark ideas.
