There’s No Such Thing as Failure

By

February 26, 2012

Tweet But there is such a thing as semantics.  Words mean things.  But we try and attribute new meaning to words so they don’t sound so bad, or we try and frame them in a more positive manner.  The word failure is one of these words. I just wrote a post about allowing ourselves...

Failure is the Only Option

Tweet Our schools have forgotten to teach kids how to fail. They are too busy scaring our kids into getting A’s and keeping a 4.0 GPA that our kids aren’t willing to meet failure face to face. I was a mediocre student in elementary school.  In junior high I figured out the system and...

Resistance, Fear, and Art

Tweet As I read through The War of Art by Steven Pressfield, I’m occasionally compelled to share some of his wisdom.  The latest entry I read was titled “Resistance and Fear.”  I’ve written about fear a few times (20 Seconds & Not and Option & Lizard Brain) on this blog, so it’s nice to...

Are You Incredible?

Tweet My four year-old son is a big The Incredibles fan.  He dressed as Dash for Halloween and has worn the costume to my other son’s Christmas program and then shopping the other day.  And in the last two days, he’s racked up two more viewings of the movie. So file this one under...

What’s Burning?

Tweet I joined a 30 day writing initiative yesterday which is part of The Domino Project.  While The Domino Project is something I don’t quite understand, I thought it would be good to explore.  I felt that way about Facebook and Twitter when I joined and over time began to understand their purpose.  Maybe...

I Made a Cereal Box

Tweet I really could have used an Easy Button. Somewhere in the process of writing The Starving Artist’s Diet I decided that I should make a collector’s cereal box as a gift and marketing tool for the book.  After listening to a speech by Seth Godin, I was motivated to create the cereal box...

I am an Artist

Tweet One of the hardest things to admit to myself over the years has been the fact that I am an artist.  Why?  Fear of rejection?  Fear of other “artists” not agreeing with me?  A perception that I needed to be corporate?  Thinking that my art wasn’t real art?  You know… Writing isn’t art. ...

The Starving Artist’s Diet Wordle

Tweet I created a quick Wordle for The Starving Artist’s Diet. This is just a test run, but I think this will be fun to play with as a promotional tool for the book and I’ll probably do something with it for all the people who helped get the book off the ground. You...

Art is Shipping

Tweet It is very hard to ship. Yet is seems so simple. In fact all I had to do is open an email, attach a file, and click send. But every time I thought I was ready to attach that file, I’d think of something else I needed to add, or I’d see an...

Not a Peep

Tweet IndyFringe started last night and Mass Ave. was hopping.  As I walked down the street, there was a moment where I felt like I’d been transported to New York or Chicago with the architecture, the smells, and eclectic people.  It was a nice feeling. I chose to see Not a Peep at Theatre...
