Creative Success Tips from a Creative Success

365: Day 147
I’m re-blogging this article by Molly Crabapple because, gosh darn it, I found it inspiring. Check it out when you have time:

Molly Crabapple’s 15 rules for creative success in the Internet age – Boing Boing

Tip No. 15 is my favorite:

“Be massively idealistic about your art, dream big, open your heart and let the blood pour forth. Be utterly cynical about the business around your art.”

We *all* get down about our art at one time or another. We feel like impostors, weirdos, or worse yet, failures. What’s an artist to do? Keep going. Share your frustrations with a confidant (thanks Nic!) or blog and share them with the world, but *move on*. Don’t stop moving.
