Creativity always takes weird turns - one idea leads to another, one glance at someone else’s work will lead you in a different direction, etc. etc. But here’s the good news: All that is perfectly normal. It is fine to begin again - no matter how many times it takes. You’ll know when you are headed in the right direction - you will feel it in your gut.
Go forth, make something new, forge a new path, combine elements, be encouraged. The most important thing on the Creative’s journey is to keep going - always, keep going.
