I’m not creative.
I have never been creative.
I like to make things.
I follow patterns or steal ideas wherever I can, but, I am not creative.
Oh, I make things. I make things that I like and some things I don’t like very much at all, but I still make them.
Have I ever had a creative thought? I don’t think so! Not one bloody creative aha moment in 61 years.
Nearly all of my adult life has been spent working, I never had an urge to bake a cake, make an item of clothing, paint a picture – well – just fucking nothing! I never baked. I never wondered about sewing, it never crossed my mind to knit something and as for making a model or a painting…. –
Not once in nearly 40 years did it cross my mind to divert my time from working to waste my time creating!
And that’s the thing, I see creating as wasting time.
