A call on behalf of artistic creativity

By Patrick Phillips
On November 1, 2012

Have you ever started writing a novel, screenplay or poem and stopped midway or hid it in your desk because you thought it was not good enough? Do you have an awesome
idea for a song but are worried
that people won't like it? Well, my friends, I'm here to say get that novel out of the drawer, put your sheet music
out on the table and commit.
Art takes construction
and reconstruction,
thinking and rethinking, trying and retrying. We all get self-conscience when it comes to presenting our personal
work before our peers. We always
say something along the lines of, "It's not finished yet," "It's a little rough" or "I'm still working on it."
We try to hide our vulnerability, but that is exactly what art is: being vulnerable. Art is expressing yourself the way you want to and sharing it with your community. Getting caught up in how others will critique your work will only hold you back.
Commit to trying hard, failing a few times and never giving up. Only then will you be able to reach your full, creative potential.
