A Good Reminder

The inner itch to “just do it” is the artist’s compass.

Although as artists we make maps, we seldom find them. An artistic career does not resemble the linear step-by-step climb of a banker’s career trajectory.  Art is not linear, and neither is the artist’s life. There are no certain routes. You do not become a novelist by moving from A to B to C.

The reward is in the making of the thing.  Do it for that.
