They don’t create for the fame or the money.
“A true artist takes no notice whatever of the public. The public are to him non-existent.”
— Oscar Wilde
Creating is a very personal experience.
It’s a personal journey within your mind.
Fame is a distraction. Money is a distracton. What is popular gets in the way.
It skews your thoughts.
It leaves you biased.
When everyone else is heading towards X, head for Y.
Explore where others aren’t exploring.
Create what others aren’t creating.
Do not create out of reasons that others have set. Create out of reasons that speak to you.
