I reread the book Art and Fear by Bayles and Orland and they had so many ideas for how to get people to make art, that it worked for me to start my blog going again, and then ultimately restarting this podcast.
For part two of this four part series on Art and Fear, I’m going to share the what they said that inspired me to not quit. Here’s the quote.
Quitting is fundamentally different from stopping, the latter happens all the time. Quitting happens once. Quitting means not starting again, and art is all about starting again.
That quote is really the inspiration behind season two, and the episodes I’ve made since I restarted.
