I never in a million years considered the thought of being a “creator” in this world that I have encountered. Really, to be honest, I never imagined doing more than just logging in and making friends – getting used to the controls, learning how to dress myself and finding an AO that didn’t make me look like I was a waddling duck. From 2006 until now and probably ongoing, I will always look and feel that way – that ugly duckling still struggling to find a possible reaction in this “glorious” world. Sure, I have come far – far from that wide-eyed innocent that first logged into Second Life, but I still get “wowed”. I get “wowed” when I see amazing creations done by those whose imaginations take me for a ride. Whether they be a builder, a photographer or just a simple person mixing words and song. I am transpired to reach out and try.

The day I opened an lár, I was completely terrified. I’m still terrified. Everyday I sit back and watch others in the same creative field and wonder just how they do it – what motivates their creativity to reach new heights and make another amazing creation. I struggle – personally – with the cloudiness of my right brain. This is not to say that I’m not at all a “creative” person, but it’s been an ongoing issue since the first day I picked up a drawing pencil. When people say – “You’re now a creator, you can drop that blogging business” I get my back up. I’m not a creator – I’m not! But…I am a creator. I make creations for others to use to use for their imagination, and I make creations for my own imagination.

The very first day I saw someone use one of my creations – I cried, and the more and more I see it, the bigger the smile gets. Someone, people, anyone, actually likes them. I wonder if those who have been creating for a while still get this way. Do they still feel this “rush” of amazement when someone takes their creation and “makes something” of it?

I hope the feeling never dies.
