This is my first post after my recent joining and I can't tell you
how exciting it was to find you all! What a tremendous joy to read
such sage advise from so many generous souls! I look forward to a
long relationship with you all.
Richard, this is my biggest dilema, and a real problem for so many
right-brain-dominant persons. I say that one has to give into it,
for a specified period of time (like a few hours or an afternoon)
and then find a new way to approach the repetative tasks, so that
you can stand to keep doing them. I find that, for me, it is so
hard to assemble several copies of one design, that I have to keep
thinking of new ways to approach it to keep from procrastinating.
Sometimes I read a book or journal relating to our field for awhile,
or sketch, fabricate or hit the web galleries just to satisfy that
itch, and offer myself the reward of indulging in a new method right
after I finish my 'work'. We are all so fortunate to feel so
passionate about our work/art, and to have it as a source of
pleasure, as well.
Best of luck,
Nan in SF
