I find I flourish in writing. Scene after scene after scene. But then you tend to lose yourself in it...and you end up finding that things turned out sooo interestingly in your story you just have to let it run its course. Chapter after chapter, scene after scene. Whew.
Art takes its course, and time. One scene at a time. You revel in the moment. But you can lose interest in the moment too. Look at my gallery and see what I mean.
Thankfully, there is real life to ground you back into reality. Right now, real life for me involves selling this year's corn harvest. 1 bag of hybrid corn planted in between mango trees in a 1/4 hectare area. All threshed and should by now be dried. 60 kilos of freshly threshed corn when dried for 2 days becomes 5 kilos more or less.
Putting writing and art into real life.
Alas, is there a way I can have my art and writing in real life? I mean technically these two are in my real life. But come on, you share them online. And online is something, but not enough. I know of artists (real mature professionals) who have their art in real physical galleries. People come to these galleries, have some finger-food while looking at their art. High-class event right? Sweet! And their audience is real and mature as well.
Well, I'm not like that. My real life consists of...well, something else. Being a fan of MLP:FiM though, at least I can take comfort in what little farming I do. Heck, its not even me myself that does the actual manual labor. I get the list of required agriculture stuff (seeds, chemicals) and I scour the city for the best suppliers.
I wonder how many artists here in dA can have such high-class society type events where people physically go to an actual physical gallery and eat actual finger-food and talk about the art that they are viewing?
And as far as writing stories and real life go, I have my own "story" to live.
