For almost two years, this blog provided a thought every weekday with questions on Fridays. Now I post when inspiration strikes.
this week: ignorant. those guys get out of the office around 5:30.
Good Christ, I'd love to be one of those genius creative savants. The kind with unending talent, no common sense (or fear), duct-taped Adidas, a Maserati, and ten Lions.
I must say, I love both of your answers. A lot.
Either way, I'd leave earlier than 4:30 in the morning like I did last night. But with the first option, I'd do it and then win awards and stuff.
Oddly I didn't take the idea of being "ignorant of the need to be" talented to mean you had no talent. Just that you were conscious of being talented.To that point I totally choose ignorant, I think there's added pressure to being incredibly talented. I mean what if Juan Cabral wrote the Head On commercials? He'd be a failure, unless he didn't know he couldn't, then he wouldn't give a shit.
That's how I meant it, Marques. One can be talented and also ignorant of the need to be. That need is, like so many causes of angst, external. If one spends less time trying to be smart, they'll be way better off, IMHO.
I'd take incredibly talented. Because everyday I think about how writing is really, really hard. I think loads of sheer God-given talent must ease up that feeling a bit.
"If one spends less time trying to be smart, they'll be way better off, IMHO."I should be good to go in that case. Rarely does a day pass when I'm not actively becoming slightly dumber. I should be wicked smaht in no time at this rate.
