A LOT of the time, I draw without being conscious of it. It’s something I’ve always done. You’d get a better answer if you asked me when I started breathing.
This year I’ve started some major personal projects. I’m hoping to get one published, so everything about it matters. Still, I can’t make the part that just draws shut down.
But I know how. All I have to do…is be happy.
When I’m happy, I can’t draw. It means that I tap into negative energy to do so. I’m trying to learn to create without doing so, but it’s hard when the emotions have to be at the surface.
Of course, I can’t wait. So I feed the beast whenever it howls, and hope to work on my projects in between. It could be worse, right?
