Today’s blog post is dedicated to just getting started. One of my many finds regarding the creative process is the podcast How To Be Amazing with Michael Ian Black. Overall, it is just a really great podcast and I always thought Black to be hilarious from when I first saw him on The State. Black interviews actors, political activists, authors, playwrights etc. to have an in-depth, meaningful conversation about the creative process.
Recently, I listened to the Kevin Smith interview and it was such a goldmine of information regarding how he went from an aspiring SNL writer to a filmmaker. This episode resonated with me because it was such an intimate insight of how one tiny act of working toward a goal can lead to something you never could predict. If you don’t mind some profanity, then I urge you to have a listen.
No matter what season you are in with your creative pursuits, it is important to just start!
