I post my artwork to a couple of sites that require you to habitually write text accompanying the post. As regulars to my blog and Facebook will know I don’t tend to write much unless I feel that there’s something that I want to include such as experimenting with a new technique or maybe an interesting location or occasionally a particular message or motivation to the work etc… I find it very annoying and tedious being regimented in to having to write something purely to hit a word count. I could write a load of pretentious rubbish every time just for the sake of it or I can do as I wish, write as little or as much as I want and present the work for the reader to view and hopefully to enjoy.
That’s better!, glad I got it off my chest! 🙂
