Another tour week down, and more grants and applications to be written over the weekend. I also have a short film and my own Scripts and Screens workshop as well. As you can guess, I'm worn out.
I don't think that we talk about how much time and energy it takes to be an artist enough. Being an emerging artist, I constantly worry where the next source of income will come from, how projects reflect my work ethic and my values and how the next opportunity will benefit my practice. I work all day and write all night, and its the way all artists operate.
This is work, not a hobby. Tonight, I'd debate anyone who begged to differ.
