Alan Moore on inspiration

“I don’t subscribe to the ‘precious’ attitude toward art, where you sit and wait for the Muse to settle on your brow. You can’t just wait for an inspiration – not when you’re doing it for a living… If you wait for the Muse to fly in your window, you’ll wait for weeks… You’ve got to develop a mechanical approach, think about what you’re doing, and experiment.”

— Alan Moore
