The Old Soldier is not talking about money; but my constant struggle to stay within a monthly monetary budget got me to thinking about creativity.
The Old Soldier knows that many of you reading this have far greater responsibilities and lead much busier lives than he does. I’m retired. I’m a life-long bachelor. I have no children. My time is my own and I have just enough income to allow for the necessities and a few creature comforts.
Even so, no matter how much I try, I’m only able to produce one or two pieces of content for this blog every day. That’s about it if I want the content to be any good. Three pieces of content in one day is really pushing it.
You probably have the same problem. Writing anything is an investment of time, effort and yes, creativity. Sure, some of us are more creative than the rest of us; but we all have some restraints on what we can do. The restraints can be internal and they can be external.
If your creative budget only allows for a low production rate, don’t worry about it.
Just stay within your budget and get done what you can get done when you can get it done. Just stay at it. For an artist, perseverance is a beautiful thing.
