but that is not the end of the world.
I could have had a YouTube channel at fourteen. Sharing opinions, discoveries, imperfect short films… But I was too busy saving my materials for the academy awards.
Saving my scripts for competitions that would take me straight to fame and fortune. Needless to say, I didn’t won the competitions and ten years later, I’m only now starting my YouTube channel.
Why don’t we share our things? Why do we get defeated by high expectations about our creative work? My scripts are not perfect but they are good enough to inspire, give someone somewhere an idea they treasure. And that, my friends, is more than good enough.
Now, in the weird position of teaching, I repeat to students what I wish I had learned a long time ago: you have a lot more to share and contribute to the world than that flawless, perfect, masterpiece you keep in your head.
