I've been working on my thesis for some weeks now - the deadline is approaching SO fast, even writing down the word deadline just made me shiver. Turning the pages of a book seems to have become the greatest social interaction I've been getting lately. (Does watching TV in the evening count too?)
In the beginning my thoughts were only wandering off occasionally (to my blog mostly, I was sooo creative in the beginning, my Addiction to Creativity has diminished) my thoughts, and my creativity, have decided to take a vacation. How do you get it back?
I took a short break today to work on my new website for TYT (okay, I admit, it lasted longer than I intended to) and somehow, the site is still almost empty, even after working on it. Isn't that weird? Shouldn't it have been full of inspiration and ideas, almost bursting with creativity?
Not only is my mind blank, but also my website. I already had this amazing "I launched my new website post" planned but I'm still centuries away from that now. Light-years.
These are the moments where I'd love to be able to illustrate or draw or have any artistic talent, then I could at least fill my site with beautiful illustrations. I actually did some doodling, but after a while I was even shocked by my non-existant artistic talent. I couldn't even identify what I had been drawing in the first place. A friend of mine once told me anyone could learn to draw, but I think with some people it is just hopeless. (like me, I guess).
So now I've decided to ask my readers: What would you like to see on my website (it will become a creative collaboration platform one day, hopefully ;-) ) Is there anything you have always wished to see on a page dedicated to art?
Or: Are there any illustrators who'd love to sketch something for my site? I will offer you lots of credit, that's for sure.
I was even thinking about doing a small competition, the one with the best idea will get a full feature on tradeyourtalent and more (that will be a surprise, of course :-) )
For now: I hope my inspiration will be back from vacation tomorrow. I hope. Otherwise it is going to get into REAL trouble for abandoning me like that ;-)
I almost forgot: a big hello to my thirtieth follower, Dana Carey, check out her beautiful illustrations on her blog http://danacarey.blogspot.com/
