Octavia E. Butler on Creating Yourself

Welcome to Make Daily! This email contains an idea, reflection, and a simple action you can take on your work today.

Idea 💡

"Every story I create, creates me. I write to create myself."Octavia E. Butler

Reflection 🤔

I think a lot about what I can do in my creative work. Its rare that I remember what my creative work does for me.

I believe that the things we build are a huge part of building us. The inverse is also true. The things we leave undone leave a mark too.

There is a nourishment in creating, but sometimes its easy to lose the point.

Action ✅

Create something out of sheer joy today, and let it build you up.
