The Artist's Suffering

Kim ScafuroThe Artist suffers from something: deciding what she will do before she does it. There's a very common problem in having to say what you will do before getting it done, and if you have trouble articulating what it is you want to do, well, then you're stuck in a stage of unproductiveness--stuck in queue that is--a bottleneck in the workflow process, a rock that refuses to budge.

You've got to be creative to lift this. You've got to trick yourself into doing work. You've gotta sit your ass down and write down words, boil the vegetables, sketch out the nose. You've got to actually do something--forget saying what it is you're doing, people will figure it out on their own. Give them some credit!
