Just work. And keep working.Jerry Saltz, How to be an artist
Drag my unremarkable ass to the gym.
Sit my ass down and read the books I need to read.
Haul my ass to the chair and do the work with my therapist(s).
Put my ass on the sofa and listen to the people I love.
Get my ass in front of my computer and apply for jobs.
While I’m there, I (on my ass) need to do some writing.
Drag my unremarkable ass to the desk, chair, sofa, or table and do the fucking work I say I want to do, to have what I think my best life could be.
Nothing changes if nothing changes.
I either put my ass where it needs to be to do the work or I will never be the artist I say I want to be.
Do the fucking work. Do the fucking work starting now.
Work, you big baby! Work is the only thing that banishes the curse of fear.Jerry Saltz, How to be an artist
