If the weather of your creative world is anything like mine, there are going to be moments when the skies are bright and clear and sunny. And then there are going to be moments when the clouds roll in and the rain starts to pour.
It’s not that I mind the rain, though. In fact, I like it very much—else I wouldn’t live on the West Coast. It just can be overwhelming when sunny skies transition to heavy precipitation so damn fast.
I’ve learned from the storms I've weathered in the past that the best reaction is not to run and search for cover right away, however, but to stay put for a while and make your own cover; to pull out an umbrella; to walk around in the rain for a bit and see what there is to see; jump in the puddles; splash some water around; look at the lightening and hear the thunder; because really, it’s not all so bad, and in many cases, it can be pretty damn inspiring.
So when it rains and it pours don't always go indoors right away.
Instead, stay in the storm for a while and see what happens.
You never know what could come up while everybody else is hiding from the rain.
