[box options]Side note… Today I’m guest posting on Michael Perkins’ amazingly creative blog The Handwritten. You’ll want to check out Michael’s take on simple, honest blogging. It’s like eating decadent desert without the calories. [/box]
There’s a secret to joining a creative community.
“I don’t like the word ‘community.’ Sounds needy and I’ve had enough of co-dependency,” you may say.
“I’m an artist, Andrew. I lock myself away in a room and think about my feelings for hours on end. I’m just fine without a creative community.”
“I’m not comfortable calling myself ‘creative,’ so how would I fit in with people who really are creative?”
Who is that talking?
What is keeping you from connecting?
Why do you feel the opposition to connecting with other creatives?
