I have to do stuff to figure out if I like it. I can suck at but like the challenge such as with writing or parenting. I can be good to great at it and dislike doing it like with making pickles and jam or managing the demands of the home front. Somethings I haven't done and have no interest in trying-- street drugs and horror films come to mind. All these years of education, work, and life, and I still keep at the idea of refining what it is that I like doing which is how I've recently found myself enrolled in a screenwriting class.
Some think that the arts are therapeutic. However, for me, this takes away from the value of the actual art work because to get something worthy or interesting it takes some serious wrestling and perspective on the creative end. Therapy and art both aim to bring the unconscious to the conscious. Art is slippery and sometimes lacks perspective which can feel like therapy where you work stuff out.
I started sweating bullets when several classmates mentioned therapy and artistic vision together in their intros.
I'm aiming for art, not therapy. I keep chiseling away. I might change my technique and try sneaking up on the muse. Or maybe, I'll just continue to wander.
