“I’m going away to make my art” is the dream of creatives. The idea that our work can be created in idyllic isolation, refined to perfection, then released into the world to be greeted by rapturous ovations — is the biggest over-romanticized lie we have ever told ourselves. Whether we’re writing for our company blog, writing technical documentation, or simply running a personal blog to showcase our industry knowledge for career development, there comes a time every creative thinks about retreating into isolation to solely focus on creating. Who has ever made a ‘creative vacation’ work? Probably fewer people than you think.
