The word for today is “investing”. When we create art or write creatively, we invest in the work, we pour ourselves into it. In many ways our work becomes an extension of us, or at least a piece of us.
But there is more than picking up a brush, or typing on a laptop. There are different steps that we go through with creating, much like a farmer working a field. He or she tills the soil, then plants the seed, later there is weeding and fertilizing.
So for us, we develop the concept, meditate or visualize what it will look like, and we begin. Along the way we may run into snags, and redo a portion, or even all of it. Art is often work!
But when we invest in our craft and continue with perseverance, usually the results are a wonderful harvest!
So keep investing in your art and writing! Go forward making our world a more beautiful place.
