Motivation for Lonely Creative People

First, a reminder:

There is only you.

You knew that, didn’t you?

Or did you assume the creative journey WOULDN’T be a lonely one?

Consider this — the idea is in your head. It is not real. It is a vision in your dreams, a whisper in your ear, a stirring in your soul.

And now, you must find the resolve necessary to wrench the invisible neuron activity from the ethereal to the physical.

How could you NOT be alone?

You have questions.

Questions like:

  • Why do I feel inadequate?
  • Why was this stupid idea was dropped in my lap?
  • How will I ever finish this?
  • Why does nobody understand?

The answers are:

  • I don’t know.
  • I don’t know.
  • I don’t know.
  • and — I don’t know.

Because the truth is, there are no answers to the questions you ask.

There is only you.

And you must find your own way.

The good news — you can.
