Elsas creativity blog - thoughts on how hard it is to find time.
for creative projects. Many enthusiasms. Not enough hours.

MARCH 10 , 2007

TIME HAS RACED, I HAVE DONE ...
LITTLE ON THE CREATIVITY SITE

The days have raced into each other. I have gotten out updates - but very little else. The reading of The Fluffers Book as been redone, so now it pulls me in. A million thanks to Mark for that.

But when I think of what was accomplished in a month from the end of last May to the end of June I am stunned. It seems I have been standing still.

What has happened? Everything else. Teaching. The rental site - which has taken a huge chunk of attention. And, a tiny bit, time with my mother. But it's been the rental site above all else - which has gotten along all right since last May, but with the work piling up. This and this and that and the other. And then the days raced by - devoured by a monster. A monstrous load of work.

No inner pressure to get back to the creativity site. Things seem to be simmering here and there, loads of burners on my stove, on low heat, none of the pots boiling over.

Next week piles of marking will be coming in - so again priorities higher than the rental site.

I keep learning, keep being pleased with accomplishments - most recently (today) with an ultra-sleek place I did the visuals for on the rental site. Not my style, but that wasn't my goal. My goal: to capture the style and feel of the place. I think I have. And here it is:

Le Loft du Centre-Ville. Sleek, superb downtown Montreal vacation rental
plus executive business rental accommodation. Palais des Congres,
Old Montreal, Vieux Montreal, Place Bonaventure. For 2-4.

I'm proud of what I've done - yet another stretch of my abilities. And I'm frustrated - is this what I should be doing with my time? It is ephemeral.

The rental site could also collapse into nothingness in a moment. It exists to rent the places it advertises. It does not exist for its own sake.

And my site, which exists for its own sake? What of it?

I need to focus more on it.

There's even more, actually. I've learned an enormous amount, this past year, about how to get a site visible on the web. Search engine optimization - formal words. And I've wanted to use those skills for stuff I care about. So I've been glad to put time into a friend's site. Now there are three more sites that may come into being.

I am reaching out for that work - it feels right to do so. But is this crazy, I ask myself. Because there are only so many hours in the day. And here I am, volunteering to give many away.

The question? Time. How best to use the time I have available. I have so many desires. And the creative desires mix with so many others.

I will try, once again, to put more energy into this.

****

And then I remember all the enormous amount of time I have put into creative projects that did not go anywhere. Somehow now there is less time. Where were all those hours? They don't exist now.

I feel so full, though, of energy, hopes, plans, dreams. So close to so many things.

And each month does see the site get more visitors.

****

Anyway, for tonight, this is enough. A few minutes for this site.

As always, welcome into my world.

signed,

Elsa

A note for those of you who, like me, care that I sometimes write "Elsas creativity blog" and sometimes "Elsa's creativity blog." I prefer to use "Elsa's" - this is the grammatically correct spelling. But there are rules of the web. One rule: there are places where one can't use apostrophes. Another rule: one is supposed, at specific times, to use the spelling identical to the place where one can't use apostrophes.
