Only I Can Determine If I Am Prostituting Myself

by Carolyn Henderson on 6/13/2016 9:06:54 AM

Determining whether or not we are “prostituting ourselves” -- in our art, or in our lives -- is very much a personal and private conversation, highly dependent upon the yard stick we use to determine our moral choices.

When it comes to the creative professions, everyone wants to do them. So you have to work harder than most to be successful. It’s very competitive. If it’s your passion, you're going to like working hard. It’s not all about wearing a beret, eating cheese and drinking wine. All the successful artists I’ve met along the way are workaholics. They work all the time. You really have to hustle. [...]
