How many hours a day do you spend on your "art?"
    #4396107 - 07/12/05 04:13 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Recently I've been spending 14+ hours a day at the computer, writing my stories...sometimes I feel bad that I've become sort of a hermit, but on the other hand I never feel more alive then when I'm writing
fiction.  Plus this is sort of what I've been aspiring towards, to never stop writing...that's the only way I'm going to finish anything. 

I should really get out more though...

Anyone else want to share?  How much time do you give to your chosen passion?  :smile:

Jealous of you as usual Elle. :smirk:  I don't spend nearly any time writing these days...

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

That's why I can't stop Robot...because I know if I even pause for a second to think about what I'm writing I'll have a terrible time getting started again. 

I'm not like this all the time, trust me...  :tongue:

It's the underconfidence that digs my grave...I write something, then I go back and read it and think it's not good enough...so I edit it, and reedit it, and edit it again, until I realize that what I wrote was not what I wanted to write in the first place, so I rewrite...

It can get so hellish just having the confidence to not look back...heh.

One or two hours. Not everyday. I work full time and hang out with friends a lot nowadays. Ask me a month ago and I would have said work and then make music. Now I don't write as much per day, but on my days off I'm writing for 5-6 hours. Lot of fun and sometimes a lot of work. But the rewards are definitely worth it.

Cheers.

Yeah, that's another reason why I'm getting as much done as I can...I have to get a job soon and all my free time will be going out the window.

I was lucky to write even a page a day when I was working.

I try to play every day if i can. Although i found it best if i dont play guitar for days or weeks, then just play one day. Makes it so much fun. Helps me come up with more material also, unpredictable riffs as well. Keeps the passion alive :smile:

You ever come up with something really good at work and forget it when you try and get it down at home?

Yes, that's why I have two notebooks and a tape recorder with me at all times to catch it before it fades.  :tongue:

I draw throughout the day... while at work, and when at home... probably comes out to about an hour a day on average, with the occasional 3-4 hour chunk once or twice a week

I don't work so don't have to worry about that yet...but I have gotten the occasional bewildered stare while sitting at a restaurant. :smile:

I used to compose music for 10-12 hours a day. Now I'm into programming and I'll do that for maybe 2-4 hours a day. Have to say though, it's a lot more fun writing music than writing code. :rolleyes:

I don't know if it's just my personality, but I tend to get obsessed with one thing and then spend hours every day for a couple months doing it.

not enough.


--------------------

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

usually write between 30-60 minutes a day, play guitar for an hour to two hours a day. i work full time and got children so its tough to juggle, but my kids come first, then my art.
