While going through everyone’s posts, I was immediately drawn to the post Dum-Dums are my Marlboros. After further reading I had this one thought: we are the exact same person when it comes to artistry.
It could be from all of the movies I’ve seen, but I also realized when you Google “Artists smoking,” it’s mainly a bunch of old photos. Then when I Google “Artists,” it’s a bunch of more recent photos where artists don’t have cigarettes. So maybe Dum-Dums ARE the new Marlboros.
Now I wouldn’t consider myself an artist, I never really do anything creative. But I do in fact get bored VERY easily when I do have the random chance of being creative. Something that has helped me though is comparing my work to similar work (that I may have done or someone else has done). Doing this peaks some sort of inspiration in me, and I no longer am bored with what I’m creating. Going off of that…
Again comparing my work to similar work helps me A LOT with this. The difference though I’m not impulsive at all when there’s danger… I simply… RUN. Another way I overcome failure is by asking for feedback before I fully publish my creativity for the world to see. It may sound scary, but find someone who you trust, someone who knows your creative side and can see if what you made it to its full potential.
I think I chose to make a blog post about this blog post because it honestly sparked my creativity. And as someone who can completely related to everything that was written, I also wanted to share the different things that help me be as creative as I can be. So here’s my last piece of advice, keep looking at other blog posts because you never know – you might be like me right now wondering what my Marlboros are.
