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.
