That’s right. I’m taking the plunge and starting my creative life full time. In just under two weeks, writing is going to be my life.
I’ve wanted to take this leap for a long time, and if you couldn’t tell from my previous blog post (Tips for Thriving in a Creative Career), I’ve started preparing for it for a while. Though the decision was not made lightly, the timing is in my benefit.
There are so many people in my life trying to convince me they have all the answers. They are suggesting things that I should be doing and projecting their insecurities toward me.
But this isn’t their life. Sometimes I have to remind myself that I have prepared for this longer than they’ve known about my creative leap. Though some suggestions are helpful, I’ve learned to filter out the other ‘helpful’ tips and focus more on my strengths.
Have you taken the leap and done the creative life? I’d like to know your thoughts, fellow creatives. You have experience in this world that others can only pretend to know about.
