I do not believe anyone teaches a writer to write, an artist to paint or a singer to sing. They must find their own voice and style or they will copy someone else. You can show the basics and this is it.You can be supportive no matter how you feel about anyone’s work. It is a piece of their soul they are sharing with you. If you are a compassionate person, you will respect it and honor this. If not, you will just live in your own world feeling you are better or above others, which helps no one.
Some artists/authors/singers believe they are above others if they win an award or get published via a big corporation and this is an illusion and a load of bull since all the markets a so competitive. Everyone has their own work to share and you either resonate with it or you do not. No one is better or worse so just do your thing no matter what ANYONE thinks or tells you. There is a lot of envy/jealously and wickedness in our world so beware. Those who share love, confidence and kindness do not NEED to bring you down…only UP.
Most create from their soul if they are honest. They do not thrive to plagiarize the works of others if they have courage, honesty and dignity to find their own style and voice. You may start out copying the styles of another and when you mature, you will find your own way. When you do, you will feel an inner aglow.
Presently, I am working on a few WIPS, some artwork, and dealing with personal matters. It is a balancing act for sure and more challenging when the weather is too cold or hot. So when you find yourself struggling, step back take a break and know whatever you need will find you when you are ready. There are plenty of things you can do to live your life until the next brilliant idea lights you up and thrusts you into something new. If you did take the time to read this, thank you and wishing all much confidence in your magnificent creations…MG.
