Recommendation for Real Artists Don’t Starve

04/10/2023 0 Comments

Real artists don’t starve. How can someone say that? Why would they? This is a website about baking (books), so of course a book that revolves around creating and metaphorically eating enough should be featured here.

Jeff says Real Artists Don't Starve, and this cupcake says a book is a great way to serve others and make sure you eat, too.

If you serve others well, you deserve to eat, too.

Real artists behave differently compared to starving artists.

Jeff Goins wrote a book with that title: Real Artists Don’t Starve, and it shows us the differences between starving artists and successful artists. Now, when I say “artists,” it is not just referring to people who produce watercolors or sculptures. It means anyone who creates anything.

You are an artist.

Don’t starve.

Real Artists Don’t Starve

In this book, Jeff Goins explores the idea of the starving artist myth and how it is not necessarily true. The book is based on the idea that creativity and success are not mutually exclusive, and that with the right mindset, anyone can achieve success. It provides practical advice on how to make money from your art, how to build a successful creative career, and how to develop the right mindset to achieve success. It also provides inspiring stories from successful creatives who have found success in their art.
Here are a couple of the lessons from the book.
One of them is:
**The Starving Artist waits to be noticed.**
**The Thriving Artist cultivates patrons.**
This lesson revolves around what Jeff calls the “Rule of the Patron” . . . which says that before you can build a large following, you have to learn to please a single reader, follower, or patron.
Another lesson from the book is this one:
**The Starving Artist works alone.**
**The Thriving Artist Collaborates with others.**
In that portion of the book, Jeff shares the story of the Inklings—the famous group of writers that included literary legends C.S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien—and how some magnificent works that we enjoy today almost didn’t come to be!
These are just couple of great things Jeff shares in his book to help you succeed in your creative pursuits.
