So why am I not an artist?

Is it because I dread to think I may add to the world's complement of mostly-bad books? To spend a year or more on something without either the guarantee of greatness or even the reassurance of usefulness is pretty scary.

Paintings can take up to half a year and for a fragile area of canvas. Of course the greats work much faster and build much bigger things but it is an exchange of time for Art that I am not too keen on. If I do something, I want people to look at it and think that they would have done it the same way and build on it rather than re-doing but of course this is a different issue.

Go forth and be great, all you artists; although I sadly regret that creativity seems to be lacking in the Arts in recent times.
