Creativity isn't some mystical, woo-woo, inexplicable thing. Creativity comes from dedicating yourself to the idea that you can make it work.

inwy's raison d'être

It's Not Working Yet (aka "inwy") exists to document the writer's journey. What does it mean to create? What does it mean to practice an art? How do we go from nothing to something? Or from something to something even better?

inwy is for those ragamuffin writers and creators: folks who are just figuring out what it takes to build something.


inwy demystifies creativity.


To take over the world, one missive at a time. :)


In all seriousness, we have a few values that we find important:

  1. Everyone is an artist.
  2. Art exists to make the world better.
  3. Art requires vulnerability.


This site was inspired, at least in part, by Seth Godin's The Practice: Shipping Creative Work. The title is lifted directly from page 67. You can read about it in the very first post on this site: "The Power of Yet."
