Not Your Typical Artist

Lately as I’ve been working in the arts I realize that I’m not really built as an artist.  My business experience defines me and I’m a little frustrated as I learn how the art world works.

I find myself working and thinking like an MBA graduate and not a thoughtful writer.  I have to remind myself to dial it down a notch.  The art world is way more fluid but with much more concrete deadlines.  It makes me a little nervous but then I remind myself that people have been working like this for a very long time and I’m new to the scene.  I have to learn to work within the system and not force my way of thinking into a well established industry.
