Fascinated

"To this day, I'm fascinated by songwriting," said Jim Adkins of Jimmy Eat World.


The question is, what fascinates you? And how are you engaging it?


No doubt not every leg of the journey, project or job will be utterly fascinating. I'm not sure our minds and hearts could handle being captivated by everything all the time. But that's not the issue for most of us, is it? Most of us stop being curious along the way. We lose childlike fascination with our own projects. We drift away from the supernatural pull that once motivated us. We get lost in the fog of other ideas and slowly release what once held our attention firmly.


Then what do we do? Quit? Move on? Dive in deeper? Refocus?


Q. Do you remember what most fascinated you about writing, forming, shaping, designing etc? Be specific.


Q. Have you really become fascinated with another creative pursuit, or are you simply disillusioned with where your current journey has taken you?


Q. What have you been doing to actively reengage the wonder, curiosity and fascination with your creative work here and now?
