I should introduce myself…
Hey, my name’s Melvina and I am a creative crackhead.
I have a passion for many art forms: writing, visual arts, performance art (specifically dance) and music.
This blog will retell many crazy moments I’ve had as a young creator. It will not just be entertaining, but will reveal the realities of turning an idea into a finished product. Many times, a creation is flawed; messy, slow, unproductive. Many times, being too ambitious makes it difficult for a creator to finish a project. Many times, being too ambitious distorts our prorities.
I’ve learnt that we (fellow creators) must breathe, work, rave, and sleep, because a well rested mind is more productive.
This blog is written in the perspective of a peer, an amateur artiste. I don’t want to be refered to as anything else.
I offer experience, not expertise.
This is because my will to create is determined by impulse (what I’m feeling and what I’m going through), so I tend to try a lot of activities instead of focusing on one. For example, in one week I could focus on my creative writing activities and in another week I could be working on a painting.
Artisitically, I’m everywhere….
I latch onto creativity in anyway that I can.
Here’s my needy artistry fellow creators, I hope it inspires yours!
