If you’re an artist, a writer, any kind of creative, this is the kind of advice to take to heart. It’s all about showing up, doing the work, not caring what people think but showing them what you’ve got anyway. Not because your work is awesome but because it’s worth it and even if it doesn’t measure up to what you know it can be, the only path to that greatness is by doing the work of BEING the artist, the writer, the creative. Forever.
Yeah, so. Get right on that. ‘Cause I think you’d rock it.
