I'm writing something
I won't call it a story but I'm writing something. I have the general idea in my head, I've got most of it planned out, but I need substance.
I've got questions for someone that's sculpted before, statues, busts, anything. Mostly about the creative process involved, planning, inspiration, subject matter and why. Materials and tools used and how such things are used would also be a good help.
Also speaking to a metalwork engineer or a fabricator would help, someone that knows about different alloys and materials, particularly things like melting temperatures of those materials, best ways of making a strong join between two pieces of metal, any hints or tips or any useful information they can think of that might be useful if I was building a strong framework.
Sculpting information is far more important though. I'm sure I could look up the engineering stuff.
Self improvement comes from trimming away the shit, not building up on top of it.
