The Creative Process

Pin It
While at the WPPI U Convention in Atlanta a couple weeks ago, Jasmine Star, shared this video in her presentation. Ira Glass, American public radio personality, shares his thoughts on creativity and more specifically about the process of bettering your work.

Ira Glass on Storytelling from David Shiyang Liu on Vimeo.

We look at the talented, big name, creative people in our world and often just assume that they have always been great at what they do. But the truth is, being creative is a process. That is why its called a "creative process." We all have to try and try again, working to better ourselves and our work. I so enjoyed Jasmine Star being open about her creative growth, sharing with us her effort to be the photographer she wanted to be.

You don't have to be a photographer, designer, writer, musician or even a creative person to apply Ira Glass's words to your life. What in your life are you not happy with? Are you fighting your way to make it what you want it to be? Or are you giving up?
