| RELAX AND FLOW |
Just keep going... if it doesn't work there then put it somewhere else until it works. Sometimes the goofs make the success! Become a duck and let the water roll off your back. There is a time and place for all your creative outlets. Have fun with it. That's the key :)

| Uncertanity zone |
There's always uncertanity surrounding when I'll get my next TV gig. But I've never been without a job in 22 years (knock on wood). I think my comfort zone always lies in the excitement and anticipation of my next big TV project, whatever that may be.

| Not taking a risk will ruin you |
Who cares? Most of you, meaning 99% of you who comment won't risk anything or even want to be imperfect. Total original creativity is over rated. Why do you think so many shitheads make demos using digital technology instead of analog, where the real creativity is. Start taking a friggin' risk fellow musicians by creating some value for a band you want to open for. Do this by interviewing them regularly. Chances are they get none, or very little media. Have the interviews put on your site. Bring college media to their gigs. Take a risk and help a band. Then ask to open for them, even if it's for free. But ask for the sale. I'll bet you most still won't do it. Because it pays nothing at first. I'll bet I'm righ

And Mr. Dolan.... love love love your thoughts as always....thank you

| Thank you |
I don't often comment on blogs, but I have been reading your emails for some time, since a friend in the music biz recommended it. I felt it was time I told you thank you. I'm a commercial photographer, who for many years worked with musicians, now in fashion, and we share the same doubts and struggles. Despite many successes that nagging doubt is always there. Your blog is often just what I need to hear to carry on. Thank you.

"Safe and Routine?" HA! There's no part of the writing/music world that is routine or safe As a matter of fact, as we know and are reminded every day by atrocities like Boston, Texas, etc safety, as we once knew it (in my lifetime anyway), doesn't exist! "Out Of The Box" type folks were once considered eccentric! Today, if you don't think that way, you're pretty much doomed for failure, or at best mediocrity! Over the years I was able to relate to all types of people.Blue collar (just a smidgin) white collar, etc Today, I find, communication with non-artistic or creative types impossible! With the exception of truly creative people, the others have reached their goal..."Brain Death", and they don't communicate!

Fear of failure, of others ridiculing my work, or just plain self-doubt are sitting at my writing table provoking me always. ENOUGH! I hear myself yelling at them, but then it causes a reaction and determination in me that eventually transforms into confidence.

That really struck a chord with me. When I struggle creatively, I long for an end to Fear and doubt, but I see now that itís part of risk, and risk is always a component of creativity.
