Don't Imitate, Innovate

NP - Jamiroquai - Feels Just Like It Should .......... (YAAAAAHHH!!!)

I'm never satisfied with just reading a book, or listening to music. Well I am, but if the book is particularly good, or the music, I always get this urge to write my own. Some people (maybe most) are satisfied just to enjoy the works of others, but I'm not. Don't know whether its a good thing or a bad thing. With my music, I'm usually satisfied with my own creation, but when it comes to literature, I'm never happy with the short stuff I write...I guess I need more practice (kinda like my cooking actually - I love to be creative but I'm not good enough). So whenever now I read something particularly great I wanna write my own, but in advance I say 'well it will suck, so why bother'. This is bad. And I dont know what to do about it.

    Everytime you get that urge, sit down and write something. Even if its just a sentence or a short paragraph. Build your way up.

    I never get the urge to write music, but I do like to challenge myself when writing. Although the only time I really put an effort is when its for school :p Besides, I'm not nearly as good as you are Z. And you shouldn't waste that great talent you have! What you write in your blog is pretty impressive, think of what you could do if you put your mind to it ;)
