I have been in a state of creative purgatory. This time last year I was at a low point. I was unsure what to do. I was at a crossroad but there were no signs or even obvious roads or paths to take. I made a few decisions, chopped through the undergrowth and headed forward.
Now I find myself in a more creative place. The view is still hazy, the roads are not clear but the muse is travelling with me. I don’t worry about having imaginary friends as long as they are creative. Although depending on your spirituality you may feel that the muse is no more imaginary than truth, justice and the honesty of those who work in financial institutions. I digress.
The image above is a folder on my Mac. It contains 247 music projects in various stages of completion. As I type I realise there are another six elsewhere. Over 250 pieces of music that I will work on and begin to share. For over a year I haven’t been able to make any headway on these tracks, now I can.
It is the same for other creative projects. From writing to image creation, the muse is leading me on… in a nice way. I think she (yes she, but that isn’t to say that’s the gender of all muses) wants a word now so I’d best pay attention. But one last thing…
… this blog post was touch typed. I am finally getting around to learning to do that as well. You never know, I might post more!
