Fail, fail, fail, fail, succeed

The Process is the Thing, Dummy

Why can’t everyone see how good my (insert art here) is? Why don’t they love it as much as me? If no one likes it, does that mean it’s bad?

Wrong, wrong, and wrong. Wrong questions, wrong assumptions.

You know that thrill you get when you make something?

That’s the point. The whole point.

Rinse and repeat.

What happens after you make something is out of your hands. You might think you have some control over it, and you do to a very small extent.

But you have zero control over whether anyone likes it.

So you’re left with the joy you experienced creating it.

Isn’t that enough?
