Procreation and Creation

It occurred to me tonight that what I want to do is create something beautiful.

It got me thinking to the analogy between that and creating a physical child. Creating a physical child is kind of unique because there's something of you and the other person who created the child in them.

I thought to myself, people who procreate must believe that they themselves have something worth contributing, or replicating, to the world. Something that, of course, becomes something more than the sum of its parts, but which has the seed of both parents in them.

So in order to create, you must believe you have something worth passing on or expressing. You must believe you have something of worth to say.

I want to make people feel as wonderful as I do when I behold a good work of art. That is what I want to do.

Any suggestions as to steps I could take to accomplish this goal?
