“Allow yourself to be uncertain, but don’t let your uncertainty turn to despair. It can be wonderful to write when you’re sad and full of the dark bouquet of doubt, but misery leads itself to silence and one must get out of bed every morning and prepare for the great celebration of one’s own imagination, even if it doesn’t happen that day.” A letter from Dean Young to his aspiring-writer nephew, adding to our running archive of timeless advice on writing.

Nobody gets to be you, except you. Nobody has your point of view, except you. Nobody gets to bring to the worlds the things taht you get to bring to the world – uniquely get to bring to the world – except you.

So saying there are enough writers out there, enough directors out there, enough people with a point of view – well, yeah, there are – but none of them are you, none of this them is going to make the art that you’re going to make, none of them will change people and change the world in the way that you could change it.

So if you believe somebody who says, ‘No, no, we’ve got enough of those,’ then all it means is you’re giving up your chance to change the world the way only you can change it.

When a young woman cites being told she shouldn’t pursue being an artist because there are too many artists in the world already, Neil Gaiman offers some words of wisdom. Complement with his even wiser advice to young people in the arts.

A fine addition to our ongoing archive of sage, timeless advice
