Creatives (and Anyone) Need Support
I’m grateful for: finally learning what constitutes good reading – the only books we had in the house as a kid were the Bible and C.S. Lewis, and my schools actually dampened my reading curiosity.
Thank you to: my creative writing teacher Stephen Pett, who was an exception to the above.
Something loving: I was reading about Ang Lee, and at two points in his life he almost gave up filmmaking, but the support of his wife and his father, respectively, kept him going. At the same time I ran into an article saying filmmaking is the #3 worst degree college graduates can get in terms of unemployment and career prospects. Artists need your support, and if you are one, don’t be afraid to ask for what you need.
