Have you ever been super excited for a project, only to lose all motivation before you finished? Have you felt so tired that you could not bring yourself to do anything artistic? Have you felt so down on yourself about not doing anything that you started to doubt you had any talents in the first place?
I know these feelings, because I’ve had them too! I am a writer, and all along my career I’ve tried to find a good balance so that I could keep writing while earning a living. It was a difficult battle. I’ve had day jobs in several different industries, from science to theatre. I’ve been so burned out at times that I didn’t write for months. I’ve felt so low about my writing that I didn’t perform well in my job. I’ve had so little free time that I neglected my relationships and my mental health.
Thankfully, these years of struggle have taught me a lot, and I decided that I should share that knowledge and experience with other artists. This is why I have decided to write this book, The Part-Time Artist.
In my book, I talk about my experience and all the lessons I’ve learned on my path to becoming a writer. I strongly believe that these lessons can be valuable to all of you. It doesn’t matter if you are a writer like me, or a painter, or an actor, or a musician, or a designer, or any other type of artists. I know we all face the same struggles!
When you get a copy of the book, here are some of the things you’ll get:
# An easy way to build productive habits to do more art on a daily basis
# The common myth about the tortured artist, and why you don’t have to be one
# A step-by-step guide to build a business plan for your artistic career
# The best way to set goals for your creativity
# A strategy to make your day job work with your art (instead of the other way around!)
# And much more!
Not only that, but you will also benefit from several resources and useful tools, such as a weekly planner, a budget tool, a business spreadsheet
