Some of us are better than others at a particular medium and choose to tell our stories in one specific format, e.g. music, words or film.
Others, those with multiple interests, who have been described as ‘Renaissance Souls’, choose the medium depending on what best suits the story they want to tell.
If we are to be clear-minded creatives, we need to be aware that everything we put out into the world is telling a story about us and what we stand for. Especially now that so much of our lives appear online (and in many cases is recorded there permanently).
If we put out confused messages about who we are, then we can expect only confusion back from those we come into contact with (I’m working on this, myself).
Each creative work we produce will tell its own, compact story, but will also be a chapter in the story that is our overall body of work.
If we can consistently create meaningful work, we will leave a legacy behind and it will have its own tale to tell.
What story do you want to share with the world?
