Make Good Art speech by Neil Gaiman

With my recent feelings of being a bit blocked, this was an amazing speech to listen to at the end of one year and the beginning of a new one. No, I’m not blocked, I’ve just been caught up in paying bills, and completing chores, and trying to do things that everyone else says I should do. Life isn’t always easy, but at the end of the day, or perhaps the beginning, we should do at least one thing – make good art! Thank you Neil Gaiman for your good words.

    Thank you Tiana for sharing this video, I enjoyed it very much. There are many great points in Neil Gaiman’s speech. Making good art is not easy during hard times, but when the hard times are over, your good art remains.
    Most of all, I like the advice of “pretend you are someone who can do it”. My guitar teacher once told me something similar : “if you think you will not be able to learn to play this, you will not learn it”. Very useful advice for people who might have been brought up in a rigid environment.

    Better than “pretending you are someone who can do it” I think is believing that you are capable of doing something, even if it is a challenge, like your guitar teacher said. I think a lot of us compare ourselves to others, especially in this age of the web where we can see so many great examples of art, and then we think we are not as talented as them and we give up. Looking back on my past achievements helps to boost my confidence and create something new.
