Creative frustration

Or is it frustrating creativity (or lack there of, really)? I have done absolutely Nothing (yes, a capital N) with my inner creative urges. I have a studio full of painting supplies and a brand spankin new 5 megapixel digital camera, yet nothing to show for either. I haven't had much time, really. I know I say that a lot, but it's true. There aren't enough hours in the day for all the things I have to do... when do I have time to sit in front of an easel and paint? And my camera has been sitting on my desk waiting to be used, but so far all I've done with it is take a few shots of Fat Bastard napping on my bookshelf. It's pathetic, really.

I wish I had the Zack Morris ability to make time stand still and do other things. That would be perfect. I could paint, read, design, photograph... then come back to "real time" not having missed a minute. Ever feel like the world is time is marching on without you?


All the time. I can somewhat relate to how you feel, there's so much stuff I want to do like update, draw, and such but I don't do it, I run out of time/end up being to busy, but I still don't have a good excuses.. and I end up acomplishing nothing...hopefully that made sense I'm tired so yeah @_@;

I know how you feel, working part time and having two little ones under foot doesn't help. Just do what needs to be done, the rest will wait til you have the time. I find doing yoga really centers your self. you should try it.

I know exactly what you mean.

Don't worry about it. You're young, you've got plenty of years to paint, take pictures and do whatever else you feel like doing. God bless.

Liz, I've never tried yoga, and I'm not sure I could do it, to be honest. But I figure some relaxation might be a good idea. Is there such a thing for inflexible dorks with no hand-eye coordination?

Yes, I feel that way about time a lot!

ok.. do you remember the tv show where that girl could put her index fingers together and stop time? and then she could "unfreeze" some people by touching them? man... i wish i had THAT power! ahh!

The show that had the girl stop time with her fingers was Out of this world starring donna pescow, maureen flannigan and a young steve burton aka jason on gh.
