So I decided to take a wee break as opposed to a pee break and drop on in for brain shake.  So I have been working on a writing project for the last (20+ years now) and I am finally happy with the way it’s turning out. Sometimes it drives me bonkers when I get hyper critical about whatever project I am working on.  It’s not so much about being worried about what others think because theit will always be people who don’t like your expression on any sort of art form.

other times I can pop out a series of short stories, edit them, do minor revisions, and then wam bam thank you... well any way you know what I mean. I had a creative writing teacher in highschool that would get so p***ed at me because I would chill in class until there eas only 15 minutes left in class and poo out a story.  Sometimes I would be in that Zen moment and other times I was meh and it reflected in my stories.

So what’s the lesson of this blog spot.... Hmmm let me think.

 

oh yea here we go, okay guys don’t forget to be a gentleman at the end of the night so suck it up and sleep in the wet spot.

Yes, in my experience, creativity can't be forced.  In fact, I'm reading a wonderful book right now called Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert.  She talks about how inspiration and creative ideas are basically floating around and we encounter them in various ways and then decide what to do with them.  Its interesting.

Oh for sure, when my wife and I first met she thought it odd that I would carry a notebook with me all the time.  She totally gets it now.
