It becomes like a magic act where everyone knows how the tricks work. Creativity is one of those comparative things, like intelligence and strength. So… I had to keep it a secret and use it all myself. Otherwise I would no longer be creative (relatively.) So I chose to be poor but innovative, rather than be rich but suck.
