I would effortlessly weave worlds, rather that was by ink, pencil, or paint. I became skilled at storytelling and fine art becuase creation has always been something I've reveled in.
and what? i'm sorry but i'm not following... you're not feeling inspired lately? that happens to all creative types magic...it's unfortunate but true. you've just got to take a break...mentally...and live your life...maybe try something new...it'll come back.
also...if you're feeling depressed that will definitely affect that.
I just woke up from a deep slumber, both literally and figuratively. I was alseep when I had a dream that one of my projects that I done in like, middle school, where I created this comic-type deal where a family explores all of these concepts from mythology, history, and science by playing roles. I think it might be loosely similar to the magic school bus series, but it's still my idea. Everybody was praising me and wanting me to sign things, and I didn't even know how famous I was the first part of the dream. The books touched so many people, and I hadn't known it. Then, I spoke with an advisor. She said that I needed to stop trying to control myself like a neurotic despot, becuase everybody makes mistakes. She said that I weave worlds, and not many people do it with the skill I do. She said not to be as accepting of negative criticism.
She said to take note of all the good producing such a work would bring. She finished by saying "Now, do it…"
I woke up.
My theme for this semester will be dreams.
