The conundrum, the number of post versus the quality of posts in your social media feed. I don’t know if other artists have this problem but I do. As an artist you need time in your “cave”. It’s a time and place to learn, experiment and push your limits.
Your audience ultimately gets to see mostly your best work. Yes, these days it’s normal for people to see how you work but I feel invariably most of them are doctored. People generally prepare a lot beforehand and they mainly just execute what was pre-planned. In truth I don’t think the audience really gets to see the amount of work done and the amount of hours put in behind the scenes. They don’t get to see the artist’s frustrations, the amount of abandoned projects, the amount of re-starts and so on. These tend to be done when one is in his/her “cave”.
Your time in your “cave” is important, for you to grow. Your time in your “cave” is needed for you to discover. Your time in your “cave” is important for you to learn.
So regularly go to your “cave” and work. Yes your social media algorithm may not work in your favour because you have to get away for a while. However it is more important to produce your best work for your audience. So do that instead. It is more important.
Please remember to comment and share. Thanks.
