A Filter

The quality I admire most about other people is creativity, because I simply don’t possess much of it. My strength lies not in creation but in taste. I seem to be better at knowing when something is good than being able to make something good. I don’t think this is quite as beautiful as being creative.

I feel like what keeps me from being creative might be how much I analyze the quality of what I’m creating. But I just can’t stop. Every sentence I write, every few words I write I’m iteratively thinking about how they sound and whether they truly convey what I want to convey. I’ve always had good judgement, and I’ve always been a good filter for what comes into my life. I just want to be a fire hose.
