This is an oldie but goodie–an inspirational video made for artists by the acclaimed host of NPR This American Life Ira Glass. It speaks to what all artists go through…those moments in life when you know what good work is and you don’t feel that what you’re creating is of that caliber yet. But instead of quitting, he inspires you to stick through those periods and keep creating!
