The Calling to Create Art

A rambling video about one author's need to write.

For 10,000 hours.

Before he--or anyone else--can be any good master the craft.

What do you think?


  1. 10,000 hours is alot of hours....

    I haven't written that many and consider my writing somewhat good or at least effective.

    I guess the term good needs to be qualified for me more. Good in terms of literary brillance? Maybe 10,000 hours is needed.

    But good in terms of changing a life... not nearly as many.

    To me, authentic, transparent writing can be quote 'good' whether the author has written one word or 10 million.

    Well, that's my 2 cents anyway.

  2. Debbie,
    I've amended my poorly written original post. The video is about mastering the art of writing, not being "good." Obviously, you can be effective at any level of expertise in any art form, but obviously you give God more to use as you master your art form.

    Thanks for making me clarify.
