In thinking about the artworld from an artist's perspective, it's important to remember:
1. You are puny.
2. Your ideas are runny like soft-boiled eggs - and also like soft-boiled eggs, they have probably occurred before.
3. You will not ever succeed, but once in a while you may get a swelled head and think you are magical.
4. People will hate you and want to bite you.
5. You will hate others and want to bite them.
If you feel like adding to this list, please go ahead. I am eager to learn, to expand my experience, to merge with others, to become less puny.
