Getting to make good creative work

We probably all know this feeling – bright idea, got all the tools, set to work, make something which looks like something a 7 year old would make, and feel ludicrously disappointed.  Like giving up.

But we’re just starting.  Ira Glass, in this well-known video confides what he wishes he had been told at the start – and he gives advice: make a huge volume of work, allow a few years, and you will begin to make interesting work which feels like what you hoped you’d make.  Just keep going.
