Come on down with me into this creative slog.
This demoralizing and routine place.
This place where nothing much changes.
Boy, it would sure be nice to have some company down here.
Creative output is a slog that is often slower and more grueling than we would like and at times can feel discouraging. The best artists, or the smart ones at least, tend to involve other people “because,” as Diana Glyer told me, “the life of an artist, any kind of creator, is fraught with discouragement. You need people to correct your path.”
