Angela Harlem, you answered my questions in exactly the way I wanted. I really enjoyed your post and am actually pretty excited about your projects.

Mrs. Springsteen, what great pictures. You have a wonderful eye.
I would love such an eye.

Muggsy, you're actually the reason I started this thread. I got intrigued when you were talking about your influences. Would love to see some of your work.

I'd love to see some of everybody's work. Verte?

Having absolutely no eye (except appreciative), no ear and absolutely no hand eye coordination or visual artistic imagination
(one of my art teachers held up one of my drawings in another class as an example of bad art and one of my "friends" was "kind" enough to tell me ) , I write. Not as often as I used to and not the great dramatic work I wanted to, but I like some of the characters I create. I just can't weave it together in one work. So I can sympathize with the frustrated writers on board, but I figure if you create one character you like or story you like, you've got some kind of gift even if it never sees the light of day.
But I can go months or even years without writing anything at all and I have half a dozen half started novels. I'm hoping one day just to finish one for myself to say I did it. Tell me why you want to write.

I enjoy parody though. Mrs. Springsteen was nice enough to read a parody/spoof I posted in Pleba Fan Fiction about Bono being kidnapped by the IRA. Parody's a pleasure for me when my imagination gets captured by someone or something, although to be honest, Bono's pretty easy to parody.

Please keep posting and don't be too hard on yourselves. Unless you're a professional or want to be, it's all just play anyway.

I agree. What I think is really nice is the one in which the dew on the leaves can be seen. Nice job.

MrsSpringsteen also did my avatar, I think that type of work does take creativity. I think you have a very good eye.

I personally paint, write music, play guitar and sing, and am currently writing a film(although it's taking me forever). I'm sorta your typical creative ADD type.

Do 'creative' types usually have ADD? I've always wondered if I had that....

The doctors that I've talked to about it, say that ADD is very prevelant in creative types. They also cautioned me that some treatments for ADD may "hinder" the creative process. And sometimes there's a thin line between society's defintion of ADD and medical ADD. I've actually been placed under electrodes and analysis for my ADD.

I've always enjoyed creative writing and would love to write a fully-fledged fantasy novel one day. For now I'm writing a piece of fanfiction based on the worlds of Ultima, my favourite computer role-playing game series. The main problem I usually have with writing, apart from lack of inspiration, is that my perfectionist streak leads me to turn the sentences and words I write over and over and OVER in my head which makes the whole process painfully slow.

The most recent work that I have actually completed was an artwork I did with different bits of luxurious dress fabrics. It's about A1 in size and shows a woman in a medieval-style dress with black hair (made of velvet) streaming behind her. She looks very much like PJ Harvey because I borrowed the photograph from the back of her "Dry" album for the facial features,

I now want to create another "fabric" artwork, but this time make it a lot more detailed and intricate. This time I want to base it on the absolutely stunning screenshot from "Kingdom of Heaven" I found on the net, which has King Baldwin IV riding in front of his army (I also used it for my avatar). I really love doing embroidery and beads and all this sort of fiddly work.

You guys are all so nice, tks so much I know nothing about photography, I just do it for fun and relaxation.

Yes that was an excellent Bono parody you wrote Bonos Saint, you should repost it here, it's so funny. I'd love to read anyone else's writing or see your artwork, etc.

The flowers in my picture are called Bells Of Ireland

I lack any semblance of creativity; but I am developing an appreciation for baroque and classical music. I am working my way forward in time.
