4 Lies We Need to Stop Telling Writers, Artists, and Other Creatives / Katherine Garcia / everydayfeminism.com


I absolutely love this piece from Katherine Garcia which was posted originally on everyday feminism.com .I have been told all 4 of the lies that the author is referring to by family members, friends, coworkers,teachers and professors so many times I have lost count.  The 4 lies are :

1. ‘Doing Creative Work for a Living Means Living in Poverty’

2. ‘Poverty Fuels Creative Work, So It’s Better to Be a Starving Artist’

3. ‘Success Is Dependent On Catching a Big Break, Not Hard Work’

4. ‘Doing Creative Work For Financial Rewards Is Selling Out’

Click on the link below to read how the author brilliantly elaborates on all 4 lies.

This author’s been told that her creativity is a “waste of time” – and that’s not the only misleading assumption going around about creative work. Here’s how these lies are limiting us all.
