Most artists tell me (and you) that art/music/writing is not a job … it’s a calling. And I know that to be true. Artists and performers who are creating projects tell me that do them because they must. This has nothing to do with the concept of success. It’s what Garr Reynolds refers to as The Creative Imperative.
He also addresses the concept of creativity as something that some people don’t believe they have. Gosh, folks, I thought we’d gotten past that myth a long time ago! How can anyone still believe that after all these years? Don’t we all know, by now, that we are, each of us, creative beings? Oh, well …
And last but not least, he cites a couple of videos … well worth your time.
