"Everything in the world exists in order to end up as a book." - Stéphane Mallarmé
When all the sets you previously made are thrown into a pile and the instruction manuals are collecting dust, it is time to take what you have learned and create something from nothing!
Just like the blank page or screen, I have stared at the LEGO pile with no ideas in mind. At my daughter’s incessant urging, I pick up a couple bricks, then a couple more. And soon enough, we have created Santa’s village or a community library with a neighborhood park or that elusive first draft.
If I had not put my butt-in-chair and tried something, Santa would not have had a workshop to build toys, the LEGO kids would miss story time, and my drafts would never have been written.
