hello does anyone have last.fm? add me ~ phoebecarse
feel free to ramble if you want! i want to hear what other people have to say about this.
there are people who are born prodigies who can do things that it takes normal people years and years of even degree level training to achieve, but it’s an exception to the rule and i don’t think that anyone is incapable. (the rule being that to be good at something you have to work hard and practice a lot)
i think that when people are born naturally better at something than someone else, it’s more a case of them being born with an interest in it, and when you’re interested in something then it motivates you to practice and become better at it. wanting to be good at something because you want to be good at it and wanting to be good at something because you’re interested in it and in the process of learning it are two different things
i agree, and i relate to it fully. so often i hate what i make but i continue on because i enjoy the process. it’s almost laziness, but totally understandable if you feel like born talent is required to achieve good art. why bother with something if you’re sure that you’re going to fail? for me i enjoy the process of wanting to know how to do something then watching myself get better as i learn how to do it.
i also feel that there’s a certain charm about art and music that is done by people who lack traditional training, practice, fancy equipment etc., i often am angry at myself for having not created more music but i tend to hide behind the excuse that i don’t have any equipment other than garageband and a guitar, in reality there are people who have even less than that and still create great music. i need to not let that stop me, which is hard to do when i’m determined that that is what’s stopping me.
practice makes perfect, but perfection is not ever really attainable is it? regardless, practice is very important. i guess what i’m trying to say is that you don’t need to be the very best at something to have reason to do it, and if you have something you want to express then you already have an advantage over a lot of artists who have the skills but lack any use for them. sometimes i feel that i’m at a point where i’m confident in my level of skill with art but i have nothing to express…
oh cool thanks!!
