Don’t be afraid to like what you like, even if it’s something that you’ve been told is silly to like. Validate your likes; they point to the source of your happiness and creativity. This may mean that what you create and what makes you happy, is not appealing to an audience. The two don’t always coincide. But if you go looking for things that will appeal to an audience and then you’re unhappy creating them – THEN what the hell are you doing?
