    I Love Having My Mind On Fire

    Creating may be the closest I ever come to understanding the mind of God. To pull something out of the vapors and give it form , and life is amazing.  It give me a high that I never want to get off.  I don't write to live, but writing adds something to my life that makes it...

    The process isn't always a pleasant one

    but I try to keep my eye toward the goal of completing a new work and that certainly makes me happy.

    I am right brain dominant.

    That's great when I'm creating... But the lows are inevitable for personalities like mine. Today I'd like to be alone and hear only silence. Maybe a long warm bubble bath is in order. And sex since I'm not alone.

    God left the earth unfinished

    for man to work his skill upon. He left the electricity still in the clouds, the oil still in the earth. He left the rivers unbridged, the forests unfelled and the cities unbuilt. God gave man the challenge of raw materials, not the ease of finished things. He left the pictures...

    What Creativity Means to Me ...

    There are so many ways to express creativity.  Writing is the main way that I express myself but there are many others which I enjoy.  Cooking a meal for others to enjoy, creating an atmosphere and ambience where everyone can be relaxed and happy.  Of course...

    When I Get A Dope Idea...

    To say that I get happy would be an understatement when it comes to creating ideas. I've love the process of creating new ideas since I was about 13. I've, of course, came up with ideas in elementary school as well (taking original ideas and putting my own spin on it and even...

    I Suck But I Do It Anyway.

    I am not a very artistic person. I like to doodle and draw when I am in the mood, but I couldn't draw a straight line or a circle if I needed too, so forget anything complex. I tried painting before but they just pissed me off more then anything.  One thing I really enjoyed...

    Creating..

    It's hard for me to explain well what it means for me to create. Partly because I can't stop looking at my pencils and my new sketchbook(:D). Partly because I know at my best I could never fully articulate something so important to me with mere words. But this is one group I...

    I have a number of creative outlets in my life

    and continue to add more, probably because there is a part of me that is always thinking I bet I could learn to do this and do it well. It's a challenge to me to try new things. I don't necessarily believe that a person is either a right or left brain person but rather a...

    and draw pictures, and I just recently started working with some other people on my own cartoon idea (its just an idea so far, but I'll probably animate and pitch it for my thesis) I am so excited for everything, and I would love to meet other people of the same drive!

    Creativity

    I am an artist. I love to paint, build, and make things, but for the last couple of months or so I have had no interest in painting or anything else. I can't seem to get past this stupid rut. I really need to get back to it, but I don't know what has happened.
