What Makes A Writer Happy?

In this interesting piece, Simon Cade analyses the artistic process and asks what are the things that make a content creator happy.

How do you filter out critics? How do you begin to trust your intuition and progress as an artist? Cade argues the key to being a happy creator is interpretation.

It is how you interpret self doubt, discontent with your work, or criticism from others that defines your growth as a creator. And that the most successful and happy artists are not those who never fail but those who never quit.

  1. Thanks for sharing. I especially like and agree with Cade’s closing remarks:

    “[T]he people who feel the sting of their own inadequacies and then keep working at it, they are the ones that eventually find the magic.”

  2. Thanks for this. Good to know I’m always standing at the edge of greatness. 😉 (Kidding)

    Seriously. I, as a rule, hate everything I write. And that isn’t just because I learned back in my journalism school days that the quickest way to NOT have my story chosen by the editor was if I thought it was awesome. lol

    Thanks again! 😊
