I don’t like blank pages.
I know some people who love white space. For them, it is a representation of new beginnings and a fresh start. For me, it represents a lack of direction, poor planning, and procrastination. I don’t resent these people or think that I’m better than them in some way, I’ve just realized that my brain doesn’t think this way. I find that I need guidelines or parameters to work within. or at least a basic framework of what something should look like at the end of the project before I start work. Wandering around to simply see what happens sounds like a giant waste of effort to me.
But. Inside of those confines, I find immense creativity. For me, the beauty is in the details.
Maybe that’s enough.
