Do you ever think too much about what people will think of your creativity? Well, I’m declaring today Independence Day from exactly that. I’m giving you permission to write/art for yourself and permission to remember that your art/writing doesn’t have to give you financial support. That’s not why we do what we do.
I think part of how and why I went silent these past few weeks was writing for somebody else besides myself and the hovering thought reminding me my writing might possibly bring some kind of financial support to my life.
But I write to make sense of the world. To let story into the world. To let story CHANGE the world.
This blog post inspired by dear Elora Ramirez’ new book Indie Confidence.
