Hi there. If you’re visiting this page, you may be here for one of two reasons. One – Being a creative professional is harder than it looks! Two – You know a creative person who is struggling and you’d like some tools to help them along their journey. You’ve come to the right place! The Survival Guide for Creative People is based on my personal experience as an author, and it’s written to provide you with some help along a creative journey.
Don’t worry – the Survival Guide for Creative People is not a boot camp. There are no quizzes, no gamification, this information is just for you to take in mindfully for self-reflection. When I started writing this, I took the perspective of kind, insightful conversations I’ve had over the years. Those people cared about me, they made their good intentions clear, they shared personal experiences and perspectives to help me get some emotional context for my problems. This Survival Guide is communicated in the same way.
When you finish reading through the Survival Guide for Creative People, you’re still going to be the same person. What you’ll also have are some tools for the challenges you’ll personally experience as a creative professional. There are many painful emotions associated with creating art, and this Survival Guide is meant to help you manage them with poise and confidence. We’ve been there, we got through it, and so can you.
