Get A Hero
TEXT: Get a creative hero. Follow everything she does. Watch for what she doesn't do. Listen for the heartbeat inside her work. Learn all you can learn and then go out and do it your way. At first, it will probably suck. Hers did too, at first. Eventually, it will become good, but not great. She was here as well. Give it ten years, ten good hard years, and go back to what inspired you so much about her. She'll impress you, hopefully, but you'll see where you outgrew her and took your own road. You'll impress yourself, hopefully. Then you'll look on down the line and realize you are someone else's hero, now. Live up to that trust.
