I've been a huge fan of This American Life for years now. I love not only their integrity to the facts, but their care in story telling. I knew when I heard this quote from Ira that it was something I needed to remember, but it quickly got knocked off the edge of my memory until this post from Zen Pencils (which is also worth checking out).
In the past years, I've often been frustrated with myself at my lack of creative output. One of my goals as a freelancer is dedicating more time to my side projects and improving my creative ability. This month off in Portland has been amazing, but I'm ready to get going. I'm ready to see if I have what it takes.
