And you know people don't usually notice, but they have probably had it happen to them a lot. There is a this huge problem with ideas, and that to me would be, how many they're is. An overload of ideas for me personally, end up getting left behind,or muddled up together, or confused. And sure I should write a lot of things down, but the amount and details I enjoy putting into it takes time ya know? and to write all that down would be a task in itself, I mean about as much as putting the ideas to use.
And sure I know many ideas are a flop, and even good ones take time and work, but when you conceive ideas, that's most fun part of it. You see it's because for me anyway, that having an idea even if you work on writing it all down and trying to work on it and get people interested, that is yet the third and most difficult hurdle to it all. Getting people interested is actually very difficult. Even getting a handful of people interested is a difficult thing to do. So when the majority of ideas don't do so well, even when there are good ideas with them, it becomes very discouraging. And no you don't really stop with making new ideas, but usually you feel there isn't a point to even making the effort to give them form and to share.
And anyone can try to say "you should make it for you" and it's true, you should do it for you, BUT ideas were meant to be shared. And for me, wanting to show people the things I have come up with with no one wanting to show interest, or having interest in any of them at all, dried up much of the things I have wanted to do. I have a pretty large amount of ideas, each with a pretty good amount of detail with it as well. So having no idea where to start constructing any of my ideas, or how to. And having only a small handful of people being interested,even mildly is a huge hurdle, and I have no thoughts as to how over come these things.
But I'm thinking.
There does need to be effort. So what my solution at the moment is. First I need to write and sketch down the basics of my favorite ideas, see how well a small pool of friends like them and ask specific questions as to what is good and what isn't. Do this a couple times to refine an idea, like my own personal focus group. Next begin basic creation to start a foundation and try to get some interest up, might take a two,three,maybe four weeks or something to see how the idea fares. After that I would try to get others to join in, maybe get friends to help get the word of said subject out, and spread it more quickly. And then, I would try to get some other artists to possibly make some things to help with popularity a little. Not trying to make some huge grand thing. Some something moderately well known in my corner of the internet. So finally I would see if planning puts luck on my side, because the real problem with ideas.
Is well.. You need luck.. Doesn't matter if you have lots of skill speed and talent,in the end luck is the final piece you need. Without it you sink.Great ideas go unnoticed and then forgotten. Bad ideas become overrated, and everyone loves them. It's really true, people love slop. And so I'm going to be trying an experiment of sorts to see what does work and what doesn't. Because all this may be discouraging to me, but I hate giving up, and not saying I haven't done so either. But I am a fluffy magical ball of poof, so I'm going to try to make some of my own luck.
This should give me somethings to do and think on at least. I'll let you know how it goes.
