A Mental Snack (51)

Share your thoughts...

"An essential element of any art is risk. If you don't take a risk then how are you going to make something really beautiful, that hasn't been seen before? I always like to say that cinema without risk is like having no sex and expecting to have a baby. You have to take a risk." ~ Francis Ford Coppola

What is your art and what risks do you take to make it something really beautiful?

My art is writing. I risk not finding a job and being poor for the rest of my life.

So true! You definitely have to take a risk. You never know but you could be great at it.

Got to take risks... got to..

Risks take you somewhere. If you don't take risks you're stuck in your mind, so I guess that is the most 'practical' thing to do:)

I go against things I believe sometimes, make my characters do things I would never do. It's scary because it's a place I don't know, probably will never consciously go to, but I have to reach it somehow. Because that's where the art is.

I have something at my blog for you when you get the chance. :)
