hey - makes sense to me. I have been called clumsy, unacademic, not the greatest at sports and not particularly brainy compared to the rest of my family - the black sheep in some ways you might say, but I am fine with it because 'creativity' with all its contradictions (I can relate to all of those things, in fact ALL of them) ROCKS. And being a writer does too - the best thing I ever get to do when I wake up every morning. To put it bluntly, who can say they have created/ given birth to something so many times (story-wise)? You are an inspiration to all of us, Scott and thank you for going with your 'gut' and helping us all succeed.

To this day, I (a writer) feel that I am really not from this planet. There was a mistake somewhere in the Universe and I was at the receiving end of it. Scott, your dichotomies had me bite my lips while nodding. And add 'feelings' to the list. We measure everything by our feelings. That often takes its toll on our daily life. Tears therefore come natural but so does laughter. Thanks for keeping us on the destined path.

This kinda reminds me of the DISC personality test -- I'm a strong D _AND_ C, with a splash of I. Which pretty much means I am at war with myself. :D

Awesome. I'm so looking forward to the rest of this series. I can definitely relate to most of the things said above. I've always felt a strong contrast in my personality, and who I am in general. I've gone through many ups and downs. I don't like being pigeonholed. I try to embrace the gamut of emotions life throws at me, rather than accepting the ones I want and disposing of the ones I don't. I truly feel that the most creative people are often the most eccentric. They're usually more sensitive and fluid in terms of who they are. They change. They learn, and as the article mentions above, they adapt. I used to not like who I was, but I'm so happy where I'm at in my life now. I just hope my writing can pay off one day!
