Dear Young Artist:
There are three kinds of artists:
The first kind of artist imagines fantastic things and somehow executes them faithfully to their vision.
The second kind of artist just does stuff, but somehow it works out magnificently, full of sheen and glory.
The third type of artist conceives of brilliant, majestic pieces of work, like the first kind of artist does, but somehow their work never seems to come out like planned, or with quite the power and wonder that was in the artist's head at the start.
I'm the third type of artist.
This letter was supposed to be way better and more helpful than it is.
