8.25.20 - Solving the Hyphenate Problem, Get right about your North Star

I love it when this podcast becomes a confessional. It has helped me sort a few things over the last couple of months, and hopefully, it will help you as you ask yourself similar questions! For those of you in the TLDL (Too Long, Didn't Listen) Crowd, here's my two cents:

  • You're a better hyphenate artist if you have ONE medium that guides your work. This is your North Star. I dabble in everything, but it's taken me this long to realize all I have done, informs my writing. Therefore my writing is priority number one. This means I have to stop committing to shit that doesn't move the writing forward. I can still create in other mediums and forms, but I have found that I work best when I bring the lessons from other artistic endeavors into my writing.

  • It takes time to find your North Star. Go easy on yourself. I just found it after being a wedding and event videographer for seven years.
