Creativity Mania?

September 30th, 2015

What about the days when you have so many creative thoughts and ideas? The days when your mind is bombarded with everything that could become a project, a drawing, a painting , a story or a who knows what. The sparks fly around in your mind with such speed and brightness that they flash by before you can grab them. You try and catch as many as you can, reaching out and collecting as many up as possibly, examining them as quickly as possible to then file them in your mind. Photograph that, write a story about this, draw that. But you know, that in the time spent gathering and examining the ideas you have collected that you have lost so many others, they are gone. Projects that will never be. Who knows if those sparks of ideas will ever fly through your mind again or if they are now destined to be as dull as a speck of dust.

Creators Block?

September 30th, 2015

Or is there another name for it? Writers block is historically documented. But what about when you just can't be creative, when you mind is blank, empty a vacuum? When you have multiple outlets for you creativeness, you can usually switch from one to another if the idea and inspiration fails or falls short. But i'm not talking about those days when what ever you are doing is like pulling teeth, instead of flowing continuously from you. But those days when nothing flows from you, your mind is not sparking at all. The screen remains blank except for a flashing curser, the canvas remains unmarked , the paint undisturbed and the camera does not even make it out of the bag.

This for me is Creators Block

Why Create?

Why Create?

Is it really a choice?

It is not for me, I am driven to create, it is an essential part of my being. My mind is full, full of ideas. Images to create, pictures to pain and Stories to write.

I like to look to nature for my art and my interactions with others for my writing. But however it is that you find that spark, chase it, capture it and use it to ignite your mind!
