How To Create More Confidently

Quote:
How To Create More Confidently
By DOUGLAS EBY

Art & Fear bookCreating may often include anxiety and other sorts of fear. We need to develop courage and learn how to deal with these feelings to be more fully creative.

“Art work is ordinary work, but it takes courage to embrace that work.”

That is a quote from the book “Art & Fear: Observations on the Perils (and Rewards) of Artmaking,” by two artists: David Bayles and Ted Orland. They also point out, “Artists become veteran artists only by making peace not just with themselves, but with a huge range of issues.”

Actor and teacher Jeffrey Tambor describes how fear can impact presence and creativity in performances and auditions, and how to shift the experience of fear.

He notes, “We are all fear-based creatures. And fear can be the great killer. It kills your original impulses, your creativity, and it kills desire. Rather than deny fear, we have to find new ways of dealing with it. We actually have to dance with it, so to speak.”

I think this is one of the reasons why NaNoWriMo is useful. It removes the need to be good from the creative process. With your mind focussing on quantity, and the gaming element of the 50,000 word goal in 30 days, you're free to let rip without fear.

A lot of what I wrote last year is poor, but my writing improved because of it.
