Friday Musings 8/4/2017

Another week, another Friday. Here are some thoughts for you to ponder. 

Two sides to your brain. That's what they say. One side for the technical stuff--the other for the creative things. Both can work together, but sometimes one side may be flexed more than the other. This can be a good thing, depending on what you hope to achieve. But if you are planning to do creative things, this could pose a problem. 

See, when I started my job about eleven or twelve years ago, I made one mistake (getting there late) and told myself never again. I went through great pains to make sure that, and other minor things, didn't repeat. Of course there are always mistakes, but never the kind that I used to do before I was in a fancy office environment. I "grew up." Maybe a bit too much? I shut out my creative side in order to concentrate on making the growing up thing happen. 

Here and there I messed with the other side of the brain, but never fully stayed with it and nurtured it the way I should have. Don't get me wrong, I did pay attention to it, but sometimes that beast needed waking up. 

Now I'm realizing that there is a way to have both turned on. I'm actually despising my technical side--it could be the job. It causes a LOT of stress. A rebellion, you could say? But there is an upside to all this. Even though writers create, they also advertise, they also write letters to the corporate part of their publishing house. There are useful bits to be had from my experience. For that, I am grateful. Always try to look at the brighter side of things. It's also paying my bills so I don't have to write on the street, which would be no bueno.
