In an edition of her newsletter, creativity coach Jenna Avery had a thoughtful section on getting distracted away from our identity and creative vision. Here is an excerpt:
When artists and writers forget who they are
As a sensitive, creative, thoughtful writer, artist, or entrepreneur it’s easy to forget who you are and what you’re about.
This is because you are so tuned into the world around you, you can become a bit of a chameleon.
This is a skill.
It means you can become the characters in your stories as you write them. It means that drawings and paintings become an extension of your mind and your body.
Even your computer becomes part of you when you work.
On the other hand, I also believe it is because we can get so involved in specific close-up details of things that — even though we can be quite good at it — we forget to step back and look at the big vision of what we’re doing.
