The Artist's Monologue: Creative Fear and Doubt


Unique to all walks of creative life -- whether you're a painter, a musician, a writer or a photographer -- is that doubt becomes second nature to your art.

See, being an artist is actually more of a curse than a gift. He is plagued by defeat, self-doubt, and this is rather inevitable. But despite all this, the artist is meant to overcome it by producing work. It's easier said than done -- often an artist will ask himself, "what if people don't like it?", "what if people forget it?" or go in a self-deprecating sermon "I'm not good enough". There are many excuses not to be an artist, but the more important question is, will that stop you?

This haunting monologue of Simon Cade reveals our own thoughts and arguments when we're tipping the point of fear.
