A response to this: uncle-bilbo.deviantart.com/art… Yes, it was a couple weeks ago now, but I had the idea immediately, but did I want to share this aspect of myself, yes, actually, but do I, maybe I should sit on it or even better distract myself with crocheting and writing, this blanket can cover a sofa and it's only halfway done, awesome Zink has fifty pages now, oh god I need to come back to dA, has it been long enough to pretend it never happened, no, ok, fine, fine, here you go.

Well hey, at least three-quarters of everything important and meaningful in history has been done by crazy people! Einstein and Van Gogh. Beethoven and Mozart. Never underestimate the power of crazy. What I’ve always liked about you is that you’re restless. That’s the main thing that we have in common, that we’re restless enough to actually want to get things done. I’ve known people smarter than you and me put together that never accomplish anything  because they just don’t care, and its my belief that restless need is a far greater part of creativity than either intelligence or raw talent.

I wish restlessness was the same as being prolific because I have so many ideas and they are all moving incredibly slowly. Thanks for the support though, I was (obviously) nervous about telling the internet.

Better to be restless and out of control than passive and uncaring - you can work your way through that restlessness with practice and turn it into something useful. My problem as a kid was too much restlessness - I wanted to do everything at once. Maybe it was the martial arts training that taught me how to fix that - you can’t allow your mind to wander off on other things when someone is trying to hit you!

And I’m relieved that you came down on the cool end of the engine rather than the hot tailpipe.

The only hobby I've ever managed to do for more than six months is drawing, excepting those cases when my parents made it mandatory. Maybe martial arts would help- I've always wanted to learn- but if it's not time, it's money. Adulting sucks.

I'm glad jumping on a pulse jet didn't wind up being as bad as it had every right to be.

I don't think there's anything magical about martial arts other than the part about 'pay attention or someone is going to hit you'. This is more about doing something with that restlessness and you don't want to cure the restlessness - you want to find a way to put it to work for you. Find a way to get it behind your art and life will start being easier.
