Offers how to and motivation for creativity

Every time I think another episode of Start With This is going to air soon I start refreshing my podcast app over and over. I’ve listened to all the episodes multiple times and have done all the assignments.

The podcast has concrete and specific information about the act of creating art. The assignments and patreon community that go with the podcast have already created a vibrant community of people sharing and discussing art with each other and there are only four episodes so far plus a Q and A. The fifth should be dropping anytime now. I’m waiting eagerly.

Got me to pick up a pencil

Life is busy. We don’t have time to do all the things we *need to do, let alone those we would *like to do. But the “likes” are important for keeping us sane, so after listening to this podcast, I was encouraged to carve out time for that Someday project. I’m a visual artist, not a writer, but I still find the discussions of the creative process applicable to my own efforts. Plus, the conversations are well-planned and solidly produced. Not one of those podcasts where the hosts babble aimlessly into scratchy microphones for an hour. This one is good.

Good, But Not For Everyone

This is an interesting little show on creativity by some great creators, but it’s definitely targeted strongly at writers. If you want some outside motivation for writing practice, this is a good show, but creative practice in other media is not much of a focus
