Creative desperation

This constant urge to create something out of nothing can be a powerful driving force. Much of my writing career has been shaped, and I suspect will be shaped, by this urge. Now, Gary Klein’s The Remarkable Way We Gain Insights has given me just the perfect phrase to capture this mindset — creative desperation. 

Klein uses the term in a different sense. He uses it as part of a model that may help us “change our story”. For me, creative desperation has chiseled out a story.
