Who decides if it’s art?

It is so important to remember that there will always be someone who doesn’t like your writing, in the same way that there will always be someone who doesn’t like you, and that’s okay.

We all have different tastes, we all like different genres, foods, colours and places. If we all liked the same things life would be boring, it would have no meaning, it would be pretty pointless. We would all look identical, dress in identical clothes, live identical lives, eat identical food, work identical jobs… it wouldn’t work.

You are an artist, with your own individual point of view to express. Not only should you put all of your love and care into your creativity, to make it as beautiful as it can be, but it should also be worked and reworked until YOU are happy with it

Your opinion is the only one that really matters. You can send your work out into the world and see what other people think, but don’t be offended by anyone else’s point of view. Let them take what they will from it, let your writing be interpreted like any other painting or sculpture or work of art. Decide for yourself what it means, and simply nod when someone else gets it.
