My wife and I were having a "discussion" about being in a zone artistically. I was trying to explain to her that when we, as artists, are in a zone, it is extremely hard to stop what we are doing before we are finished. I've been up till the wee hours of the morning working on a piece because it seemed like everything was flowing. Everything in my head was coming to life on paper/screen pretty much how I envisioned it, if not better! In the ZONE! My wife's view is that it's basically a choice to keep drawing or whatever, and that we can stop what we are doing, even if we are locked in (in the zone) and pick right back up later, like the next day. Her scenario is; You're working for a company. It's quitting time but you're "in the zone" working on piece. Do you go home or do you keep working, off the clock, to finish? I said I'd keep working. It's not that easy to just stop, unless it's an emergency (the dog on fire or something). She says that is just being undisciplined.
Does she have a point?
Do I have a point?
Am I just crazy?
What do you guys and gals think?
