Though it seems obvious, a lot of creative people – maybe even the majority – don’t make it this far.
Writers spend years creating stories they never share with readers. Singers refuse to sing in front of listeners. Photographers hide their images from viewers.
Just as serious writers overcome the worst cases of writer’s block, you need to overcome your reluctance to share your work and realize that only by sharing what you create will you be able to build interest around your work. Build enough interest and you might be able to sustain as an artist … full time.
As in … you could eventually quit your day job.
Help the other artists reading this by sharing how you’re sharing your creative work online.
