I have often heard the insinuation that writing and blogging are self-indulgent things.
This, my friends, is how those who have given up on their dreams attempt to corrode the roots of people making the grand, frightening, upending decision to seriously make art.
I have heard family say it, friends say it. I have heard other bloggers say it — and about themselves, no less.
So let’s just be clear.
Art is, by its nature, self-indulgent.
That is not its greatest weakness, but its greatest strength.
