Ira Glass on Storytelling from David Shiyang Liu on Vimeo.
Yes! So many of us think if our output isn't perfect from the get-go, or even isn't appreciated by others, that it isn't good enough and we get discouraged. We need to know this is part of the process ... you practise, you pay your dues!
I'm sort of curious about this because when I make things sometimes I'm like YES I AM SUCH A GENIUS and then I see it again and am like WHAT WAS I THINKING?
So maybe this is reversed.
It's all about wanting to do the work to make it great in my opinion--besides taste, which is also important. A huge amount of fix-it work is involved in anything really excellent. The first product is always pretty shitty. A lot of people fall down during the improving/editing part.
Or maybe that's just me.
Does anyone else want to punch Ira Glass whenever they hear his voice. Well, maybe not that. Just: I want to spill wine on him and also get him to write everything and have someone else read it because I think he has the most smug voice ever, in the history of ever.
I'm mean. I try not to be mean like this. I'm just assuming Ira Glass isn't a reader. If he is: Ira, I'm so sorry! I'm having a terrible day. I swear that's it.
