When do you create best? Create being music, art, dancing, video, whatever.
I find that I can write music best when I haven't slept and am exhausted, I think because I'm so tired my head is just empty and the music can just flow out like when you have to pee really bad but can't because you're in line at the post office and you've been waiting half an hour and you're two people away from getting to the teller but the post-teller person for some reason leaves for an hour.


so under which circumstances do you find you create best?

I create the best poops after several days of healthy eating.

At night, like in the early hours of the morning, for some reason I become really creative at night.

When I haven't eaten in a while. I actually get discouraged when I get hungry when I'm playing guitar because I know once I eat I'll lose my focus.

Aslo, at night, when everyone is asleep. Something about the silence in the air stimulates some creative nerve somewhere to want to fill it with awesome.

I create best at 3:01 am if there is a full moon and a half naked swedish woman walking down the road in a south easterly direction with the wind blowing due south at 5mph and the humidity is exactly 5.01385%.

its just whenever i have an idea. i dont find my creativity is confined to certain locations or mindsets. on a nice dose of opiates i love nothing more than embarking on some creative endeavors, but they arent particularly any better or worse than while sober.

I create best right after I get really into a album/band. I just use it as huge inspiration.
#15
At night with an active mind when there is nothing distracting me. I'm also nocturnal. I don't write music though - don't play very often. But I'd like to think of myself as a writer even though the well is rather dry at the moment. I don't know, I just get things done better then.

Same-y same here. It just kickstarts the music-y-ness in me.

Same, i am also most creative when i am going through extreme emotions, or if i haven't played my guitar in a while.

I know it sounds a bit strange, but i also try and think of unusal ways of thinking and a quirky sense of humour, i can't help it, i just imagine really stupid things that somtimes make me laugh like an idiot in innapropriate places.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

After changing my guitar strings. I did that earlier today, and I couldn't put my guitar down for hours. It was awesome.

When its raining and I leave the windows open so I can listen to it and theres a bit of a draft. Ideal creative conditions also require being in love.

No idea to be honest. I usually write short novels late at night after drinking some wine and on my most loathesome and bitter mood.
I usually write all of my music in a very short span of time. Like 3-4 songs in a week and then nothing for weeks.

I write a bit of fiction and poetry, but only when I'm in a very specific mood. I have to be somewhat tired, vaguely depressed, but with my mind racing at the same time.

Normally its after I havent played in a few weeks and then it depends on what mood im in. If im pissed off, I write some pretty good metal. If Im depressed, well I write some pretty good (or decent), "bluesy" type stuff, and if Im just in an all around good mood, usually some funky upbeat something.

EDIT: And no matter what mood Im in I never get to write lyrics to any music I write.

I rarely am.. Which isn't good.. I have no motivation to do anything though because my life sucks major balls.. If I had a more interesting life I'd probably have more things to inspire me.



Seriously, I hate my life.

Depression and loneliness is a major inspiration for me.

Im a night person so I find that my most creative periods come late at night. Usually while lying in bed trying to sleep I get inundated with ideas. Things to draw or things to build. I used to keep a pad and pen beside my bed so that I could do rough sketches of the things I saw in my mind then. Then when I would wake up in the morning I would attempt to better draw them out but I had lost the vision of what it was so it was really hard to do. Now when something comes to me at night I will sit there and draw it exactly as it is in my head before I go to sleep that way I dont lose the idea I had.

I have also found that when I want to do my best "dark" work it helps if I am depressed. Plus since I suffer from clinical depression and bipolar disorder I can usually bang those darker images out faster then I can the happier more fum pictures.
