I want to be be creative.

Posted by Obscurus , 22 October 2013 · 3,165 views

I don't really know how to start this. Which is kind of part of the problem.

All my life I have wanted a creative career. I've always wanted to write, or draw or paint or animate; some of which I can do to a much lesser extent. I'm at an age now where I feel like if I don't start doing something about it, I'll lose my spark, my ability, or my want to do it anymore. As of late, I've taken on an apprenticeship to get a "big boy job" that can pay me, but I don't want that. I don't want that life, and that lifestyle. I want to take people on adventures, and let my imagination loose.

I want to keep this blog as an update journal. A brainstorm log. Maybe a progress log. But I want to share the journey somewhere that it can be seen and critiqued out in the open (but not too open. I don't want to post this anywhere, and I know the blogs feature on Vooks isnt exactly booming). But I also want to keep this journal to keep me accountable. I'm lazy, unfocused, distracted full of excuses. Hell, this isnt the first time I've had the idea to put a new blog on vooks, and even this has taken me a week to get out.

However, I don't want to put any focus on this blog: Except to write, and to create. The first thing I have to learn is how to sit and write, so here I will do it. Even if its site relevant stuff; I've mentioned to Vook before about doing a review for Skylanders before, for the Wii, because it lacked one. But then lazynes and pessimism set in. So reviews, opinions, shit-talk, characters, worlds. Hell, I'd write fan-fiction if I could. And if I manage to scribble something worth a damn, I'll try post it.

I want to avoid venting, or any type of angry life post. This isnt a livejournal (is that site even still a thing?) and I don't want this to become another dramatic life thing. I woudlent read that, and I wouldent expect anyone else to want to.


I don't want to end up 60 with never have finished writing a book, or mastering drawing the human anatomy. I don't want to live a life full of regrets and lost dreams, and being creative is where all that lies.

So hopefully I'll actually post something and not let this all go to shit. Again.

Direct as in telling the performers what to do, or direct as in live streaming?

Tried NaNoWriMo?

 

I have friends who have committed to it and written so goddamn many words it blew my mind.

How did you all find this so fast! Haha

Plas, I'd like to one day be creative on a (semi-)professional level. If being better than you achieved that, I'd be a professional TF2 player. :P

I'd love to direct porn! Not even in a joke way. However, the porn industry is small in Perth, and smaller for the kind of stuff I'd love to shoot. 

I remember having a limp attempt of NaNoWriMo in highschool, but part of my problem is sticking to the one thing. I get distracted and complacent. Something I'd have to fix before I took on that kinda thing again. But thanks for reminding me about it!
