The good one - Updated.
The advice about drawing also applies to writing - lots of bad writing to get to the good stuff.
Awesome post and analogy!! :) Thank you so much for this lovely post. My question would be (I think this was covered over some newsletter posts, but I just thought more would be amazing too :)) how to keep a sketchbook practice. I often get so perfectionist-y and tend to try to draw only for projects that are for commissions or portfolio. How much of the week should be spent drawing just for fun, if possible, and how do you overcome fear of bad drawings?? :) :)
Yes, I agree! It is very much like what Ira Glass calls the creative gap. Have you heard his explanation? (I link to it in my latest post).
Unleash everything you’re feeling, seeing and hearing and the unexpected will follow.
A great point, Adam! I was just about to reply that it’s the same with writing - and spotted that Mark got there first! 🤣
Love this — what a great way to look at it!
Two crappy pages a day is what Ryan Holiday recommends that’s how he writes a best seller every year!
