Self-Exploitation, Part Six

Posted in Creativity, self-exploitation tagged , at 3:27 am by Rebecca Hein

I’ve always known that artists can’t think about their work in the normal way. So many years are required to achieve proficiency that one really can’t expect on-the-job training.

Nobody paid me to practice the cello and nobody paid me to learn to write. Yet even after I’d reached professional caliber, I still too often settled for absurdly low remuneration.

My work, and the potential beauty in it, has always exerted the stronger pull.
