I don't know about anyone else but I have always found it hard to concentrate on one task or a repetitive task for an extended period of time. I rapidly become frustrated and bored with a creative project and need to switch them around. One week the sewing bug gets me then it will be crocheting, quilting or felting or whatever, I just seem to work obsessively at something until it’s done then I have to move on.
I can’t even begin to imagine working on a painting for years at a time like the old masters, the Sistine Chapel would have never been painted if it was left up to me! And lets face it I will never be any good at market stalls etc. as it requires lots and lots of multiple copies of things ( I feel a panic attack coming on).
Even at the moment I cant just concentrate on crocheting one granny square blanket for the ‘Granny a Day’ group, no, I’m switching between two! Even then I have to break it up with switching between colours or I start to get a bit squirrely!! Do I have ADHD or what?
It’s not like I’m totally flakey I have managed to stay married for 14 years and haven’t yet given my children away, and I still have my best friend from when I was 10 years old so obviously my problem doesn't extend to people, just to my creative life.
