    I don't think I crave it, because that implies I don't have it. I don't see creative expression for it's own sake to be something that one can't easily obtain if they try.

    I usually like to have a few creative outlets going at one time, but I don't think creativity is at all limited to the arts. Creativity can be injected into almost any aspect of life.

    I feel I have to create.

    I crave for more skills to create.

    I would hope I can never satiate it. That would be like living dead.

    I don't know that I crave it. When the urge hits I like to express it with food/cooking. Making a really artistic bento for my lunch or my kids lunches is one of my favorite outlets.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I used to, I could be seen scribbling in my notebook whenever it would hit me. For the last 6 months or so there have been no creative expression moments, just a total blank, I hate it. I used to love the days when my muse would infect me and make me feel a level of excitement you can never quite describe, it is a beautiful feeling doesn't come close to describing it.

    sometimes I do.
    Its getting rarer though.
    I scrapbook, draw, or paint, knit, or make jewelery. I used to have a keyboard that I banged on for a while.
    My room is full of unfinished works.
    I used to write but not anymore.

    I completely agree. Sometimes, mine doesn't come out as anything tangible, but more like an expression of creative living by driving somewhere, eating something, talking about a certain topic, and feeling on top of the world...

    What do you do? Where does this stem from? How does one satiate it?

    I'm about to go pick up some cans of spray paint. Or a microphone. Same difference.
    Crave? No. It's a neccessity. If I don't do it, I find myself rather imbalanced. Sort of like eating, except I won't die from not doing it, I'll just be miserable.

    What do I do? I draw, or maybe I'll paint, or sing, or write, or go exploring somewhere. Sometimes, I don't do anything at all and let it sit there and fester. I think there's a quote that one of my professors read the other day from Art and Fear, think it went something like, "Artists don't get down to work until the pain of working is exceeded by the pain of not working." Which is pretty much what happens.

    I've been feeling a lot of that... like... maybe the rotting will produce a fine wine... some sort of chemical reaction will occur and a revelation or magnum opus will result.

    Yeah, I've imagined it that way myself. Though I've found evidence that is contrary to that romanticised notion (doesn't mean I won't still excuse myself into thinking it). Usually, what really happens, is the good stuff comes along when all you've been churning out is bad stuff. You'll keep plugging away and trying and trying and trying to get something "right" and then you'll get frustrated and go try something else completely unrelated. But when you come back, something happens and you jump forward and all the sudden what you were trying to do makes sense. Which is frustrating, and annoying, because if you're anything like me, you want to get it right the first time, not the tenth or fiftieth time. Yet the reward is so much greater than the annoyance.

    Yup. That's usually when I go start making random designs out of aluminum block on our school's CNC Mill. I've made some sweet flames, logos, and other random things.
