After much pussy-footing around and oscillating around the place like a pinball, trying just about every aspect of marketing and comms in the commercial world I realised finally what I knew all along….that I need to just simply do what I lose myself in deeply and conclusively. By that I mean I can simply dissapear and become the creative work itself, melded and blended together in a strange miasma of pixels, 11110000111’s and brain power.
I lose myself in writing, deeply and unequivocally .And I lose myself in editing film….deeply and unequivocally. Sometimes for half a day, 10 hours or so…without eating, moving, going to the toilet or drinking any water. It’s insane.
I am now considering doing a Masters of a PhD in creative writing..or something involving both film and writing because it only seems sensible and sane. Do you have anything you do that feels like an addiction but that is actually incredibly creative or productive. I’m glad for it, I feel blessed for having that, even if I don’t eventually create something of immense cultural value or anything. Hey – set the bar low and then always be amazed by anything tiny I reckon.
