The Draft

If you’re anything like me, you have more drafts waiting to be posted than actual posts that have been posted. Just think about that for a moment.

Does this happen to all of us? that I am not sure of. What is it that makes me hold back from posting a draft I’d made months ago? It’s a question i ask myself on a daily basis.

It’s just not ready I convince myself. There is always more to add, more too improve on! Whether it is a sentence made better by looking over it (for the tenth time), or a paragraph which should be removed because it was fuelled by emotions made too long ago, this is a constant battle between two minds. The Creative. The Logical.

As someone who has grown up in a an environment that seems to promote logical sense, it tends to suppress the creativity inside of me. I want to say yes when someone asks whether I am of creative or logical nature because it is just cruel to say that you are one or the other. We are all capable of becoming both and it is with that which makes us unique.

I feel that this is not just something that I struggle with on a daily basis so I challenge you to change your views on creativity. For the most of us, the realm of creativity is seen in the form of an artist or musician but that is far from the truth. We are all artists and musicians, we create sound with every movement, we express our own art in many forms. All we need to do is to answer with a yes.

So with that, are you creative by nature?

Sometimes he gets lucky and writes something good. Most of the time, however, he has no idea where life is taking him, living life just one single day at a time.
