Just another corner... 2018-05-25 05:18:08
I hit a wall again today. THE wall, that apparently smashes everyone in the face every once in a while.
No, it's not the fourth wall - although who knows? Maybe we're all living in one giant VR world.
I'm talking about the good ol' creator's block. Sucks doesn't it? I'm sure I don't need to share the gruesome details. Everyone's felt it in one form or another: feeling not good enough, envious of others, getting sick of your own work, losing motivation, and the list goes on. It's seriously the most recurring topic in the forum as far as I've observed and I'm a nearly permanent lurker ever since I spawned here.
Today's kinda different though because instead of trying to fruitlessly bandage that wound, I'm gonna let the world see it. Pressing that delete button would make it a real piece of trash and it'll be truly worthless then.
So why not just put it up? What is art even for if not as a means of expression - to share what you think, feel, imagine no matter how negative you feel? What is getting good even for if that's all there is to it? Do we get good just for the sake of getting good?
Maybe I'm ranting but is that bad too?
I'll be damned if I keep letting myself get beaten. Whenever that wall smacks me in the face, I'll post here. This is just another corner of the forum after all but maybe (hopefully) it'll be a useful corner.
