When things get tough, this is what you should do: MAKE GOOD ART

I haven’t read anything by Neil Gaiman yet, but I can still respect and admire this man who does what he loves with such conviction.

I may not have many experiences in common with you, and we might not be living in the same part of the world, not be the same age or gender, have the same personality, priorities, and the same outlook on life, we do have this one thing in common always: our love of good art.

Stories can be told in very different ways by very different people, and I love to be reminded that no matter what happens, no matter how much the world changes around us and how many challenges we face, what truly matters is that we tell the stories we WANT to tell and MAKE GOOD ART.

  1. Hugh Howey’s marketing advice to me when I found it tough promoting books was… write more good stuff… and I agree, the only world a writer can control is the one on the page 🙂

  2. Loved this. I think when we cease to see our writing as art, and when we cease to feed our souls with art, we start treating our creation as a commodity. I think that can be a real joy-sucker.
