    "conn a ship"? Loved the quote, but not sure what that part meant.

      It is roughly a synonym for "pilot."

    Really enjoyed this piece. I think that as soon as you start making work for yourself and let go of those limiting concerns about the implicit audience, your work improves and you get closer to the pure joy of creativity.

    To that end, one of the most powerful experiences I have had as an artist was creating work with the explicit intent that I would never show the finished work to anyone. In my case, I made a book documenting my time living in a foreign country and this contextual framework really loosened me up creatively.

    I highly recommend trying out "private" creativity as a way to get more comfortable with creating work with blatant disregard for whether or not others like it.
