So I did one hour on Monday then painted jeans and started a control flow poppy field painting for my mom. Don’t tell her i cheated and used a stencil but she just wont get an abstract if it went up her ass.
Anywho, the book is going well. I have six pages and on Tues, Weds and Thurs i finished the outline, organization and have six pages of the first draft. This week is two hours writing then off to painting and art class. Next week i bump to three to four hours. Being ADD i like to start something and work through to the end with out stopping, which isnt a benefit btw. its like driving from ohio to florida with no bathroom stops or food breaks. you need amphetamines to do it.
So since I have slowed down, i now have to stop myself or i will keep going. its like i know if i have two drinks im good but on the fourth, there’s no stopping. Ha ha…..truth though. Being ADD though and having alot of chaos i find if i split my day in thirds and work on them a little each day, my work improves and I have time to stop and correct myself. When i need to speed up, i just guzzle my mountain dew and keep going. This book is important though and i want to do it right. The painting is to show muy mom i can do a realistic type floral bullshit painting using pure color and I am sure Matisse himself would love it.
I want to end this with encouraging anyone who is considering a career in the creative world to go for it. Dont stop, question like your as annoying as Socrates, and move through those obstacles and have courage. Creation is our right, our priveledge and we can make some really amazing things like Michaelangelo or Davinci. We can conquer the world like Alexander the Great and make it a better place.
