Day Jobs

I came across these principles titled, “How to Be Creative” on Hugh Macleod’s site.

Principle number 1: Ignore Everybody

Or put another way, your gut gets the final say on all critiques.

Rule number 7: Keep your day job.

This is something I needed to hear.

He points out that with a day job your art isn’t beholden to the marketplace. It's a way to create with freedom rather than an excuse not to create. If Barbara Boxer found time to write a book as senator, I should be able to find the time or rather, make time to finish the last 50 pages of mine.

Can not think of a different culture, for some things, will also share the same view!
