“Most artists and designers I know would rather work all night than turn in a sub-standard job. It is a universal truth that all artists think they a frauds and charlatans, and live in constant fear of being exposed. We believe by working harder than anyone else we can evaded detection. The bean-counters rumbled this centuries ago and have been profitably exploiting this weakness ever since.” — Linds Redding
“I used to fear that my ideas were drawn from a limited pool and that at any moment this pool would dry up.
This is true if you think of creativity like a pool. A pool is a still, stagnant body of water…
Instead, idea generation needs to be like a river. There is life in a river. And death. There is love and hate. Fresh input flows in and out… there is always change.
Make a new friend. Learn to chainsaw juggle. Read a book. Go hand gliding in your underpants.
If you have done all of these things and you still don’t have anything to write about… don’t write.
Comments can be a good thing; they can create a dialogue within your work. But they can also be a very, very bad thing. Remember, there is such a thing as destructive feedback, and when you read comments about your work, you open yourself up to that.
And not only can it be poisonous to the content creator, but it can spoil the experience for the reader as well.
Not all comments are bad… Art is not born in a vacuum, but it’s not born inside a tornado of shrieking trolls, either.”

While I peruse a breakfast menu
I may say I’m ordering chicken
But when I do, I don’t follow through
‘Cause my heart belongs to bacon
If I invite a boy some night
Who brings me some sashimi salmon
If I adore him I’ll ask for some more
But my heart belongs to bacon
Yes my heart belongs to bacon
Cooked in butter, dripping with fat, yes
My heart belongs to my bacon
I could never be a vegetarian
Though I know they’re perfectly swell
Coz my heart belongs to my bacon
Yes it’s got me under a spell
