Many do not know, but Winston Churchill was an artist.
He was a world-famous writer and, later, painter.
In 1953 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.
His advice was essentially the same as the writer Austin Kleon’s.
Do your best, and share your work.
Here is what he said about working on a project.
This was a man who knew how hard it was to create something, what it took to produce great work and then put it out into the world. No better words about the creative process have been produced than when he described starting a project as an adventure. “To begin with,” he said, your project “is a toy and an amusement. Then it becomes a mistress, then it becomes a master, then it becomes a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster and fling it to the public.”
