Who’s your ideal reader or audience member? That single person you’d love to be able to pull aside and have a deep, intimate conversation with. One on one. To share with them everything you’re thinking about, everything that excites you and scares you and saddens you and brings you joy. Most of all, to share with them everything you’ve learned about the world and the human condition. In hopes that they too can have great experiences. And maybe avoid some painful ones.
Maybe that reader is yourself.
Either way, go make your art for that one person.
P.S. – I caught a mistake in yesterday’s blog post. The last line now reads, “Here’s the thing…you won’t do any of these things until the pain of not doing something exceeds the pain (and fear) of switching things up.” Apologies if it was confusing.
