That “oh motivation is fleeting and unreliable” and “discipline and forcing yourself to work” crap.
Of course you need discipline as an artist to actually complete things, but like… you can’t treat art as something you have to “force” and be “disciplined” to do. You can’t just treat it like a 9-5 job. It’s something that requires motivation and inspiration to get right.
If you treat art as something that doesn’t require motivation and inspiration to do then you probably produce really soulless mediocre work, and honestly you should probably just quit and get a “real” job instead.
And this is coming from someone who DOES do art all day every day. You can force a desk job and get by, but if you force art you make bad art.
