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.
