The Self Taught Artist (or writer)

Ten Tips for the Self Taught Artist by Ardith Goodwin

A good article about art (that also applies to writers) but I loved this paragraph
“Never let anyone else, or yourself, convince you that your marks don’t matter. Every mark we make from doodling to scribbles to the fine lines of a finished piece are the steps it takes to achieve greatness. Without the little steps, the big steps wouldn’t connect. We are not giants…we are humans that through courage and grace have chosen the calling to be a creative. We create marks to learn, to grow, to expand our point of view, and to share with others. EVERY SINGLE MARK MATTERS…it does. Go make your marks. ”  – Ardith Goodwin
