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’
