“A few weeks ago at work I had a conversation with a colleague I’ve had more than once in my life. Someone with limited to no art education started a conversation with me about skill versus talent. It ultimately led to the same larger question many people ask me “my opinion on:” Is art a skill or a talent?”
“Today’s post is about all of the rules I believe are important to creative practice. I suggest you speak the parts in bold out loud or read them every day to help you keep your focus and your energy in a place that sustains creative practice.”
“People who fully believe they have your best intentions at heart can give you advice about something they know nothing about and/or communicate unconscious messages in their misguided attempts to support you.”
“Ask yourself: are your friends helping you grow or holding you back from your creative dreams? Are you surrounding yourself with creatives who raise your level of creative standard?”
“Us creatives can be such hermits: we get so caught up in our artwork that we forget how to reach out and find these other like-minded artists. I’ve offered some ideas on building your own community already, so today let’s talk about what you should look for in your creative accountability community.”
