Who has most influenced you the most creatively, and how?
First off all that was terribly worded. "Who has most influenced you the most creatively, and how?" Seriously? PROOFREAD, PEOPLE. I mean, okay, I post failtastic English-language-slaughtering posts (I begin sentences with And and But way too often, I abuse double negatives and rape punctuation) but at least I recognize my failure and I do so intentionally 98% of the time.

The way this was worded is just wonky. It took me several minutes to "get" it. A better way to phrase it might have been "Who has most creatively influenced you and how?" As it stands, it's super-redundant and confusing.

Also I don't think that comma needs to be there. I know, it's been a while since I was an English major in college, but I do believe it is inaccurate.


To actually answer the question: I don't know. I'd have to really contemplate what is and is not creative influence. Are we talking about my artistic inspiration and/or skill? Do we mean my morality and sense of self or my concept of right versus wrong? Too open-ended for my tastes.

Plus I totally got my First! Ticket! Evar! tonight and while the police officer was very polite and professional, I'm kicking myself for the stupid situation I am now in. Suffice to say I need to do some serious work to get this straightened, if I'm lucky the fines will be reduced to like $50 total. The irony: it isn't entirely my fault. I'm not blameless, nor am I claiming to be, but...I'm not the core problem.

Still...lesson learned, be proactive about shit and stop trusting other people to actually uphold their word unless they have proven themselves trustworthy in the past. I need to prioritize myself and whom I trust.

Who knows? Maybe by flexing my spine a little, proving I have a backbone, I might be the one to creatively influence other people. :)
