The author Sise says it is absolutely possible to make a living out of our creative pursuits. I can't tell you how many times my mom has told me, "You'll never make a living off of your paintings." Thanks so much for the words of wisdom, Mom. People do make a living off of their creativity and I plan on being one of them.
Now I'm not creating just to make a living. No. I'm creating because it's what my heart and soul tell me to do. I'm creating because it makes me feel alive and joyful. But why not try to make a living off of doing what I love. I know I have a long way to go, but I'm hoping that this book will give me some direction.
