Urge to make

Last updated on March 17, 2011

I have the strong urge to make. I want to write or shoot photos. I want to design or develop something. I wan to have something to show for myself and to be proud of. I want something I can hang on the wall or link to and show people.

I want to be proud of my output. I want to be able to admire my work in whatever form it should take. I want that feeling of hanging artwork on the fridge again.

All day I help people. I fix things. I repair. I support their efforts. But I have nothing to show for myself. I’ve made nothing.

This is changing, slowly.

  1. I go through this exact same thing too, and it’s always so frustrating to me. My job doesn’t make anything, my hobbies are all about consumption, and I get pretty overwhelming urges to BUILD something.

    I hope yours changes soon.

    Oh, speaking of…this comment is late because my RSS feed for your site stopped working! I am going to try to re-add it and see if I still have problems; I’ll let you know.

    • I had misconfigured my Feedburner plugin because I am awesome. It should be fixed now. Thanks for the heads up.
