How to make more art

It always begins with the itch, the urge to create something. It sets a fire in your stomach. The more you ignore it, the more pervasive it gets.

You just need to do it, which requires focus.

Put your ass in your seat and use whatever device helps you do the work: earplugs, ambient music, a helmet, even Ritalin (if that’s your excuse).

Pray to the God(s) and close the door.

If you have an inventory of ideas that you share with the world, it’s your responsibility to ensure they get put into action. If no one’s taking them on, the onus is on you to experiment.

If you think you’re going to hit the nail on the head in the first round your nuts. You have to create junk or shitty first drafts first.

The first draft of anything is sh*t.

Ernest Hemingway

Thinking is not enough. Create on schedule. Every creative person must have the startup mentality to take responsibility for their ideas. Consider sharing your work online show people you’re paying your dues.

Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.

Andy Warhol

Grind it out.

“Write it. Shoot it. Publish it. Croched it, Saute it, Whatever, MAKE.”

Joss Whedon

And ship it.
