Fear

I've been wondering about this for some time and I reckon i just figured it out.
I've always drawn. I never paid attention in class because I was doodling in the margins. I even didn't pay attention at work and doodled on what ever was handy.
I've been living off the good will of the government for a little while now and even though I only worked 3 days a week at my last job I'm not sure if I could face going to work again.
I don't want to be rich, I'm not even sure I want to be famous (I'd like to be but I don't think it's the driving force).
What drives me is fear. Fear of the ordinary, day to day grind of worker day life. Fear of not being able to draw. I am hard working. But only at things I consider worth while. And seeing as I don't really like money I can't bite the bullet and get the old 9 to 5.
So that's it folks, fear! Fear is what drives me.

Ooooh, now - I think you've touched on it Tom. That's pretty much me to a major degree.

While I work a day job now & draw every chance I get (with the romantic hope of leaving my day-job), I fear being 60 and being in this same position.

It's as though I've found 'it' (ie. publishing/drawing/writing) - but need to make something of 'it' in order to rid myself of the ball-&-chain of my day-job that provides me money for rent/food.

It's the 'fear' of not having money to live.

I've quite honestly said to my friends, that the only reason I buy a lotto ticket each week, is so i quit my job and have money for food & shelter ( a simple life ) and just do my books for the rest of my life. I don't want to buy houses or sports cars. I just want to work on my books full time as see where it takes me.

My second biggest fear is that I'm not achieving my full potential in life with the skills I have, my biggest fear is that I will die with this same feeling.
Theres a car that drives around the streets where I live with a bumper stiker that says "Justify Your Existsence", now normally I think bumper stickers are the lamest thing ever invented, but this one really hits home.

I'm the sort of guy who would be happy with 2 milk crates and a plank of wood for a coffee table, so money isn't the issue, I guess I would like to make a difference in at least one persons life.

I was just thinking about this...

I like to make stuff.

I have a day job I really enjoy and a reasonable wage (all subject to change at any time). I make stuff in my job, and I like that, but I like making stories more. I've always doen it and I always will... but what I really want is an audience.

I'm not a performer. I don't need or want to be in the limelight. I play guitar, but I do that at home in private; I care to be seen or heard doing it--but I do want people to read my stories. I have tons of stories in my head, more than I can write or produce by myself. If there's one thing I dislike about having a day job, it's the time it takes away from my writing.

So I guess what I want is to be some kind of storyteller. Doesn't have to be comics or prose (although those are my two favourite media to work in presently), but I just want to tell stories.

I was wondering if anybody felt the same and it looks like I'm not alone.
We all seem to share a passion and are terrified that in one way or another we won't be able to do it.
Cheers guys, It heartens me to read your responses.
