    Do You Create?

    How many of you have tried your hand at the so called 'creative arts'? Anyone here who writes, paints, makes music etc?

    I myself have never been very musical, but I do like to fool around with Corel 9, and at times draw by hand, mostly sketches and characters for my novel, wherein lies one of my passions; I like writing. I tried my hand at poetry a few years back but found I sucked, so I gave that up, but I have continued writing my still untitled post-apocalyptic story, which now spans some 200 A4 pages, and have notes lying everywhere filled with ideas, dialogue, scenes, sketches etc.

    So, what do you do?

    I'm not a creative person in the artistic sense.

    I'm more of a networker, organiser, tactician and visionary.

    Very bad. Never played it as a kid, and chess is notoriously hard to learn as an adult.

    Thankfully, something better than chess exists.

    Do I create? God, what a question. I studied Sculpture, which nowadays means conceptual art; installation, performance etc. I have an M.A in it.
    But to answer the question directly, no, I do not work, (except 60 hours a week as a night-watchman which does not count for much but gives me plenty of time to think). I have not been doing what I'm suposed to do for two years now, since I left college.

    I'm playing in a band. Guitars. So that's kind of creative, I think. Mostly. Sometimes it's just loud. :laugh:

    And I'm a photographer. Nude women. This is kind of more artistic than the first one. eyes:

    Be careful that stuff is crack-cocaine for anyone with some trace of a brain and time on their hands.

    But your profile shows that you yourself are a female person so where is the fun in that?

    Yeah, its hard finding work as an artist, guess the 'starving' part wasn't added for nothing.. :suomut:
