Life is not a support system for your work or art. It’s the other way round.
We only have one life and the hours tick away every day. What do you want to use that time to create? What is the body of work that you want people to remember.
There are no rules. You can take ideas from all cultures, all civilisations. You will never be stuck for ideas if you mine the riches of what has gone before and then turn it into something new.
Artists who work on this scale have a workshop, assistants, other craftspeople who turn their ideas into reality. Does this make them any less of an artist?
I don’t think so. Because this scale of creative ambition is way beyond one person to create in a lifetime.
Do we ask architects to build their own structures? Or expect chefs to cook every dish?
Be a creator of timeless art.
The longer you look at an object, the more abstract it becomes, and, ironically, the more real.” Lucian Freud
My day is never a dull one. 24 hours runs out like I only had 4 hours. Here is it starts.
The minute I open my eyes or just see light penetrating through my curtains, it is time to rise up for a productive day ahead. I try to say a prayer or just take 3 more mins sleeping. But most of the time, once I open my eyes I know its time to get up. So I go straight to my window open the curtains then peer through my lace curtains to see what’s going on. Normally on weekdays, the amazement of watching of young children running late for school or young teens rushing to get to their bus stops is never falling to grab my attention. I love observing mothers strolling their little ones to nursery or the people rushing late for work. I always amuzed. At times, I just want to get a rough idea of the unreliable weather to know what’s best to wear.
After opening windows to get natural light and fresh air, I either go a run or go straight for a shower. I try to get ready in half an hour but make up, music or distactions makes it impossible. Thirdly, I get ready to go get my breakfast and be out to go wherever I am off to on that day. Its usually the library. I spend about 5 to 6 hours working either on a book idea, blog ideas or just writing the next series or reading important stuff online. I am forever researching.
At time I come home around 4 then prepare dinner, do dishes, sort tomorrows stuff. My days are always hectic. There is never time for tv or just lazying around. My brain is always cooking something. Either plotting the next series of rabbits stealing syrup cotted carrots or planning my trip to York. After that I pick up my motivation manifesto or a novel I been in love with. Once I finish reading. I normally listen to music. But if my days has been hectic, like today went to do some office work, walked for 8.03 km then did a story telling session and came home, I would be so exhausted. The minute I sit on my bed that’s it I am gone. I say a prayer each night before I sleep even if I fall asleep half way.
My life as a writer, blogger, entrepreneur is never easy but rather interesting. I believe time is money that’s why I never want to work for anyone. I like to make my own rules including my times.
Life is never dull for me each day I woke up. Catch me on my travel, chill days

If you’re a creator at heart then you should never settle for less than the freedom to create.

There are plenty of benefits to exploring – it opens your mind, broadens your horizon, and often introduces you to new people.
I’m a natural lover of exploring , it’s just in my genes, and I explore in many ways – through learning, writing, experimenting – but, I have to admit that my main form of exploring is travel . I absolutely love to travel – to go to different places, to meet new people, to taste new foods. Traveling makes my soul sing .
Why don’t you find out what makes your soul sing?
