Don’t Rush the Artistic Process

Don’t Rush the Artistic Process

Rushing the artistic process is bad for your creativity, your relationships, and even your soul. That may sound like hyperbole, but it isn’t. Your art and your soul benefit when you slow down and give the appropriate time you need to your artistic process. And if you want to make art that has a profound impact, and art that A.I. cannot compete with…this is for you.

    Great reminder. And I feel that as of late, I’ve been rushing a bit to get a catalog of screenplays ready for pitching. But in doing so, it had taken me away from forming relationships with other creatives. Yesterday, in fact, I met a fellow writer who stated he suffers from schizophrenia. I gave him an encouraging word right after I had reluctantly decided to get on the platform and be relational. His response reminded me of what matters to God – relationship. He said, “I’ll never forget that…ever.” Funny thing is that I was going so fast that I don’t remember what I said but he was encouraged by it. Later, I was able to finish another screenplay and add material that made it so much better. Priorities. As an aside, these blog posts are a reminder to slow down and read what God wants to say to me.

    I find your words today encouraging. I often am hard on myself for not making paintings faster. But I am learning that there is reason why I work slowly. Having a family is a great gift. I know we need to set boundaries and all that for the sake of discipline and time management. That has an important place. In many ways my family and the future of my relationships with each member is important
    also. I am in a position of having to constantly reassess how I spend my time. I have to stop and revisit just how blessed I am. And I do trust God to bless the work of my hands. He continues to teach me what is important each and every day.

    Working slowly has helped me to make more interesting artistic decisions over time. I have developed a style that is like a slow gumbo.
    It is rich because of the marination.
