(Yet another) beginning

February 18, 2011 5 comments

My wife admits that I am “a creative sort of a person” – and I agree with her too. However, being filled with creative ideas does have its “side-effect” – I’m always on the lookout for means of expressing my creativity. In the past 6 years, my wife has seen that in different ways: trying my hand at the guitar, simple drawings on paper – even miniature sketches and “graffiti” using a blue marker pen (not on paper, though). And each time, she had reiterated what I know – that I am full of creativity.

But last year, when I announced that I will write a book, she expressed another of her opinions about me – that I love beginning things. That I begin new ventures with lots of enthusiasm, do it for a few days (or in the case of my book, a few months) and then give up and move on to something else.

Me – I constantly need fresh challenges. So if something fails to sustain my interest for too long, I will quit paying attention and move on to something else.

Next month, I plan to buy a Nikon.

Working on the side

In office, I work. The stuff that I have to do, not necessarily want to do. Oh yes, there also are things that I love to do – which I try to do whether I am out of the workplace or in it.

So what’s on my plate right now? Here’s the list:

  • Writing a novel
  • Practising pencil sketching
  • Learning to make strawberries dipped in chocolate (and possibly orange slices too)

More on these later. Right now, work calls.

Pencil Sketching

A few weeks ago I asked my wife to get a drawing book and an assortment of drawing pencils on her way back home. I intend to start drawing; I mean to explore this channel for letting my creativity loose.

The problem is finding solitary time.
