…all you would have to do is paint in your studio, or hang out with your instrument, creating and creating, while the masses of adorers who are feverishly running around looking for someone to adore just continue to find you even though you spend all your time making your art. If you build it, they will come, right? If you were a real artist, they would come and they would discover you. Wouldn’t they?
So, I’m curious.
Is this something you tell yourself?
Or is it something someone else has said?
(If you’re not an artist, then you can replace that word with something like “yoga teacher” or “dentist” or “consultant” or “homeopath.”)
Maybe it’s not about having a blog. Maybe it’s the marketing aspect in general… if you were a real artist, you wouldn’t need to do any business at all.
I’m putting it out there for comments because I’m genuinely interested. I was interviewed recently by Paul O’Flaherty from Fuel My Blog, and he presented this idea during the interview. (You can see the interview below.)
What does it mean to be a “Real” artist? Or a “Real” anything?
