    i know for a fact he found it easy. he was better than me even. course he fucking found it easy

    are you mad? do you think artists find art difficult? if you find it diffuclt its not for you.
    learn a trade or something.

    but Yeats reworked his poetry constantly, laboriously, to arrive at the finish line

    The fascination of what's difficult
    Has dried the sap out of my veins, and rent
    Spontaneous joy and natural content
    Out of my heart. There's something ails our colt
    That must, as if it had not holy blood
    Nor on Olympus leaped from cloud to cloud,
    Shiver under the lash, strain, sweat and jolt
    As though it dragged road metal. My curse on plays
    That have to be set up in fifty ways,
    On the day's war with every knave and dolt,
    Theatre business, management of men.
    I swear before the dawn comes round again
    I'll find the stable and pull out the bolt.

    it took me a long time to realise that you're fundamentally a romantic - so it shouldn't surprise me that you think of artistic creation in this way

    of course there's definitely a danger of over-polishing, over-refining, over-thinking things

    but however hard Shakespeare found it writing his plays he had to put a lot of work into learning rhetorical figures etc. at school

    i know this because i talk to him in seances

    on the other hand you're right in that if you're not automatically painting or making music or whatever you're not cut out for it

    a lot of artistic creation comes down to flinging a lot of shit at a wall

    I was really good at drawing at school

    And I didn't really try now that you mention it

    I must have practiced a lot to get good but the practice was never arduous

    My whole life has been a lie

    You're right to remind me to get my old art exercise books out of the attic when I next visit home

    I think art would have actually gone somewhere for me if i'd been properly tutored... I could have been the next Tracy Emin
