Someone asked me how, as a creator, do you keep your momentum?
While I wish I had a simple answer, I don’t.
This, to me, is equal parts compulsion and effort.
Sure, there’s a driving force in me that gives me no other choice but to create. I don’t know how to function without the outlets I’ve cultivated over the years. I can’t imagine not doing it.
But it doesn’t go without effort. Trying to make the hurricane in your brain make sense to an outside party is difficult at best. Doing it within the spectrum of a specific medium (or several), more so. Finding the delicate balance between giving in to compulsions and not forcing things just to please an audience is probably more difficult than the prior two combined.
But I couldn’t imagine ever stopping.
