Ira Glass, on being creative

I'm sure this video is familiar. This very reassuring piece of insight and advice cycles through the Twittersphere/Blogosphere/Whateversphere pretty regularly (as it should!), but I thought it would be a good thing to have a record of it here, for those moments when we need it.

This weekend, as I sit watching my new play in front of an audience for the first time, I will surely hear Ira Glass' wise words ringing in my ears, urging me to keep working to close the gap. In fact, let me go ahead and listen to this thing one more time...


  1. Wow....

    I have never heard that. Thank you!

    I will be thinking of you this weekend. And remember, while you are sitting there watching your play, YOU may think there is a big 'gap' that still needs to be filled......but that is only because you have such exquisite taste. The rest of us will most surely be enjoying a beautiful piece of art.
