When did you start writing and doing art? What gave you your start, and what gives you creative energy?
Personally, I have always been very creative - especially loving writing and creating my own universes, characters or whatever might come to mind! It was natrual that I gravitated towards a lot of other people who thought the same and were interested in the same kind of things, and when I finally saw that there was a realm to express that kind of thing on an achievable scale that I could imagine, I was more than enthusiastic. I begun my first novel at 16, and after that I never stopped coming up with new ideas to this day, though my attention span often makes it nearly impossible to finish most ideas, let alone all of them!
When it comes to art, I would have to say that it was more of a slow process. I always found art more challenging and less of a talent for myself, which was hard given once more that my attention span is quite smol, once could say, and I tend to get frustrated easily at my own skills. However, whenever I do have the perseverance to continue trying, I do end up somewhat happy with my creations, and I think that's something important for everyone. Sometimes the path to getting better at something that you want to achieve won't always be easy, but certainly it will be worth it at the end if you want it enough to stick with it.
As for creative energy, this seems like a generic answer, from the amount of times I have heard other people say it, but it would really have to be music. Nothing makes me feel more enthusiastic nor fills me with more creative energy than an inspirational song catching my ear. It is truly as though there is some magic in it that invigorates and brings new ideas. I've had entire books present themselves to me in a single song, and it never fails to get me into a good mood.
