When you create

Posted to Utterances




Mie was talking about an interesting subject, below, which I kind of want to develop further. Mie was asking if it is inherently part of a poet's constitution to be miserable, etc. Well, I kind of replied, but I want to develop this idea further. I was thinking, it's not always about misery, right? I mean I can think of some instances where misery does affect the creative process, and I do indeed think that if there was no misery, or "depression" etc, we'd probably have a lot less great songs, and great works of art in this world. Anyone want to discuss this? I know someone asked this before, but what goes into creating a work of arts (writing, art, music, or anything) what motive, what emotions.
And finally, when you create, is it important of other's reactions, sometimes? I'm sure some of you have created certain works specifically for some others, if you are just generally creating, are you concerned at all what others might think of it. Do you create to make people happy, or to provoke, or do you not care. What do you think of others looking at your work. Do some of you never want others to look at your stuff? O.K. Adios.
