"You ARE an Artist!"

Tip #12: You ARE an artist!

We’ve talked a lot about the business of writing, but I want to really emphasize something here…YOU ARE AN ARTIST…make no mistake about it and never doubt it…what you are creating is art…and it requires an artist’s patience, an artist’s drive and creativity, and an artist’s indulgence and sensitivity…although there are millions of us out here, we are each unique individuals…not everyone will understand or support us and that’s ok…not everyone will be able to deal with us and our temperamental nature, but guess what? That’s ok too…I say all of this to say this: respect yourself as an artist and respect your work as art…even if no one else does…make sure you always do…because it starts AND ends right there…
