Neil Gaiman on Demythologizing the Creative Process and Point of View

I don’t have much to add. I just particularly enjoyed his comments on “demythologizing the creative process.”

Also, in his response to the question from the young woman, I heard anew the kinship of point of view and agency within our otherwise socially-structured lives. (Think Bourdieuian thoughts here.) They may sound like statements you’ve heard before, but I suggest we consider them as commentary on agency:

Nobody gets to bring to the world what you get to bring to the world…No one is going to change people, and change the world in the way you will change it.
