Artists Way

Its become apparent to me that one has to take care of themselves to be able to create. I have the “Artists Way” book but have never gone through it. I haven’t scanned it. But when I am under stress or I’m upset. I can’t write and I can’t record. Sucks.

It continues to surprise me how hard being creative is. Expression performance not being boring but being interesting. Good Grief.

Stress is a huge impact on the creative or expressive process. I’ve found that when I am crazy about job searching or relationships or other things I actually feel like I’ve lost intelligence capability. I feel stupid stuck and unable to be who and what I am.

I’ve found through the school of hard knocks that you don’t need everything or lots off things to be creative you need your pen and paper and away you go. Most of my writing happens in my head. Then I sit down at the keyboard and start typing. Generally being amazed at the words. I love the line in the movie “Finding Forester” “the first draft is from the heart”. Most of my drafts are from the heart its almost impossible for me to edit.

I’ve spent a huge amount of time creating an managing my creative excuse. Must have this or that to be able to create. Well I’ve had this or that and I don’t create. I just need me and a friend to make music. I just need my keyboard to write. I’ve come to realize its just about the intent. Not necessarily the audience not to say they are not important. But if I don’t love the thins I am doing and I can’t do them for myself the audience doesn’t matter. There will be no impact no feeling no sharing no learning.

Perhaps I will be a much more expressive artist. Let me know.
