I wish I had a story to tell. I can sit a draw repetitive lines for hours (that tree over there took days), but I can’t sort my thoughts to make sense of anything. I can’t help but wonder if something is wrong with me for spending so much time on little lines and not being bored for an instant.
Several writers I know talk about how their manuscripts bore them. They’ve lost interest. I never feel this way. I may be daunted and frustrated, but never bored. I can’t decide if this means I’ve written something mildly entertaining or that I’m an egomaniac. Or an idiot. If drawing hundreds of lines doesn’t bore me, maybe I don’t know boring when I see it.
Do you ever feel bored by your writing or art? What do you find boring and are you easily bored? What do you do when you are bored with your own writing or art?
For anyone curious, you can go here and see the art I used to do before taking a blade to my novel.
