For those readers firmly entrenched in creative lives, and for those who are clamoring in some small way to reclaim some lost ground, David at Raptitude has a great post in which he begins with a quote from Ira Glass and segues into some serious insight:
Your taste is why your work disappoints you.
It explains why people quit even when at one time they really saw how good they could be.
We all have been on the difficult side of art-making…and perhaps the scared side of art-making. And definitely on the tedious, will-it-ever-be-good-enough side…we’ve all been there.
But regardless of where you are in your journey? Maybe today is the day to pick up the reins again in some small way, to dip your toes back into the water.
(I myself am committed to doodling through at least one meeting.)
