Is the work you’re making as good as your ambitions?
A few days ago I was talking to my sister about the trials of creativity. We were discussing the difference between what we wanted to do, and what we were capable of making. It is so frustrating – in the beginning of a creative career – when you are not quite as good as you want to be.
I did not know exactly how to explain it until I saw this video. In this series of videos, Ira Glass discusses something he calls the Gap. This Gap is the gigantic space between what you know to be good and your own skill. A must see video, especially if you’re having a bad writing day.
