You get to choose
We need other people in order to do our work.
We don’t just need an audience – we need collaborators, too.
Creative work is MEANT to be shared.
Not just at the end, when it’s polished and beautiful.
It’s meant to be shared every step of the way,
from the awkward beginnings to the messy middle and all the way to the moment you ship it.
And It’s not just about who you share your work with.
It’s about who you SURROUND yourself with.
It’s about the creative people who are on the path with you.
The other writers and creative people - the people who get you and get what you’re doing.
Austin Kleon once wrote,
“You’re only going to be as good as the people you surround yourself with.”
He’s talking about people who inspire you, the people who are doing really interesting work.
If you want to find those people, you can. In this video, I explain how you can make it happen.
