How many creative writers, musicians or other artists belong to ” introverted eccentrics club ” To be an artist ( I think) is to drink in the outside world and mix it with your interior experience. Then process and colourize it through your sensibilities and imagination before releasing it back into the world through the medium of your art…
Writing and drawing are my mediums: One piece of advice I took from George Carlin was ‘write everything down’.
Do it when an idea hits you..I bet you will be surprised how much can accumulate in a year. The Muse has her own agenda and cannot be conjured at will..I have been writing stuff down for years and these collected writings and musings formed the basis of my first book..
I can tell you from experience that original thinkers are rare and if you are creative on top of that then you have two gifts that you have a duty to share with Humanity….Art is about finding your muse and running with it! Be an Original….
For many of you reading this, if you are artistically inclined, take a chance; aim to be an Author, Video Artist or have your own blog talk radio show or whatever else moves you. There will come a time when the mainstream world will want originality again..so, be ready.
