The thought wasn’t related to the activity we did in class but it just was stuck in the back of my head.
I say this because every single time I used to draw something, and I mean every single time, I thought to myself right after “bad idea.” This is because in my head I had and idea that I wanted to do, but I couldn’t do it. When I really thought about it I realized that my ideas weren’t necessarily bad, I just did a terrible job executing them, or I would get exhausted and give up.
This got me thinking, what does it take to execute and idea the right way? Because let me tell you something I drew this in 2nd grade and I remember being so proud.
cute wild wack animals were actually a part of a collection of characters I had in a world called Wacky World, most commonly spelled Wacy Wold, and Waky Wold. There were more characters such as Pencil Man (pretty obvious) and Slurper (Half fish half dog that lives in a fish bowl.) I wanted to make a book of all my Wacky World characters so bad, but how? I was running out of room in the back of my planner where I was drawing my cute wild wack animals! Lack of resources eventually lead to me becoming bored and abandoning the idea.
This get’s me thinking, what can you do to execute an idea, and keep the idea exciting.
- First lesson I learned from Wacky World, resources and ability to execute idea correctly will keep the idea from rotting away.
- Second lesson, make sure you actually care about the idea.
This isn’t groundbreaking information but it’s something I’m telling myself to keep in mind.
Try not to do something you can’t do, and don’t do something you don’t want to.
If I was as creative as I was when I was in 2nd grade I would try to make Wacky World a real book, but sadly I’m not, and honestly I don’t think I could top some of the ideas I had.
