So many folks are calling 2022 a “new beginning.” However, artists & treps are used to new beginnings. It’s where we live every day. If the music isn’t right or the scene has a bug, we record another take. If the painting isn’t right, we paint over it. If our business slides off the rails we upgrade what works and downgrade what doesn’t. If the words aren’t right, we rewrite them, because writing is rewriting, and our showbiz careers are nothing more than a series of daily rewrites, upgrades, do-overs, fresh starts and new beginnings!
Important because as crazy creatives, we slam on the breaks much more often than we floor it, and we frantically flap our wings much more often than we cruise! And while others are making resolutions for a new year, to an artist/trep it’s just another opportunity to improve our work, rethink our strategy, hone our craft, and nose-dive back into the deep end of the pool, where our comfort zone is!
“It’s time to spread our wings and fly
Don’t let another day go by my love
It’ll be just like starting over…”
— John Lennon
