Well said. I feel like you're spot-on about what it means to be creative and the kind of work that it actually involves. Less creatively-inclined folks often don't understand. A lot of people (myself included) grew up being told that creativity was "fluff" because we live in a society where it's not valued appropriately. Which makes me sad.

I will say that because creatives aren't paid what we're worth, it is somewhat of a privilege to be able to do this for a living. People who struggle to make ends meet might need the stability of a traditional job. I wish this kind of life were more accessible to more people.
