Hm.. I keep coming up with ideas for songs. For the most part, in the past, it was just classical solos or duets. But I’ve had this idea about creating a Blind Guardian-esque band, and keep getting these little ideas for parts of songs and having to write them down. It might be fun having a band - sort of epic, power metal - but could I even do it?

Bleh, I am somewhat good at so many different things, but there is no one thing which I am truly good at, that I can devote myself to. So I am stuck with all these little pieces of things, but none of them can really go anywhere... I wish I could find one thing I am really good at, and stick to it. But I’ll feel like my other talents are going to waste. I want to do these other things as well. And then I end up with no time to actually finish anything...

I'd say your inability to commit to a single choice is the real problem here, not that you aren't good enough at any one thing.

Just because you pick one thing doesn't mean the others are being wasted, just put on hold until you become a professional at one of them. For argument's sake let's say I end up animating professionally. After an eight hour day of animation, do you think I'd go home and do the same thing? No. I'd work on my car, or take photographs, maybe do some digital painting, I might even write a script and shoot a live-action short. My other talents wouldn't be wasted, just done at a different time with the first talent providing financial support. One of the talents being used to make a living doesn't make the others any less valid.

Eh, if only it were that easy. After an eight hour day of one thing, one usually doesn't feel like working on something else. Not always, but more than usual.
