    Default Artist or Writer?

    Do you consider yourself an artist, or a writer?

    I am just... that ace!

    I'm definitely not good at either, so I'm voting that.

    I am about as skilled at one as I am the other. That is to say that I am pretty terrible on both counts. Passable at best.

    Haven't you published a book or two though? That would make you a writer.

    Writer. I write pretty often. Not just reviews, but plenty of fictional stories. Don't always finish, but lately I've gotten a lot better at following through what I set out to write. Can't draw worth trout.

    That's more of a job really. I move boxes around at my day job all day but I wouldn't call myself a logistician (although I should, because that sounds alpha as fetch)

    I voted artist but it depends on your definition of artist I guess. I do a lot of graphics work, photo editing and such like, and I make videos. I can't say I'm hugely talented at that though. I definitely don't draw or do traditional art!

    That said, I've won the Best Writer Ciddie but never even been nominated for Best Artist, so make of that what you will xD Maybe I should've voted both/neither on reflection.

    Art is a form of expression, escape. Writing is a form of expression, escape. It is these two forms that encompass the same. To be a writer, and good at it you must possess that of an artist.

    “I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.” - Frank Sinatra

    Creativity is certainly about not being constrained by rules or accepting the restrictions that society places on us. Of course the more people break the rules, the more likely they are to be perceived as ‘mentally ill’.
