Oh, it has been two years since I wrote the first entry. Needs to be changed :). I somehow got around to put a friend’s advice into practice and create a blog “back then” for the purpose of sharing results of creative ideas :). Another thing I may have changed is my attitude.
I cannot believe how negative the last entry sounded! I am not ashamed, but there is no connection to this person anymore so-to-say, and that really makes me feel weird right now. ANYWAYS, attitude :
I once read that the worst enemy concerning one’s creativity is one’s own criticism, perfectionism, etc., so I really tried to lift that off. Cannot say it worked 100% by now, but then again, who cares (Eat this, perfectionism!!)? Anyways, the thing is, when I criticise my work constantly I will either get scared of further pursuing the things I love, OR I will just not find any pleasure in it. Or both.
The thing is, art needs to have lumps and bumps. If I, for example, see soembody on stage in a concert, who only pays attention to how perfect everything he does is, and also his looks are well thought-through and don’t resemble his own ideas anymore … Then it gets boring. I know because I usually tend to avoid such concerts/musicians/etc. It is the lumps and bumps that make stuff interesting, believe me ;).
As for my pc time, I did reduce it a bit. I’d still go online sometimes, but mainly to check my mails or really if there is something I definitely need to research. And the blog sort of forced me to keep going, too.
So thank you, once again!! :)
