A recurring theme of this podcast has been the many benefits of digging into our authentic core—that is, who we are as a person and as an artist—to ground our work and create our most distinctive and valuable art. Sounds great, right?

But what we uncover in the process may not always be what we expect, or even what we think we want our art to be about. What happens if what we discover at our core, what we really have within us to say, feels too weird, too dark, too 'different' to share with the world? What if the very thought of sharing these ideas triggers fear—like the fear of standing out too much? Michele and Bec chat it all out.

Bec quotes Dennis Palumbo from his book Writing from the Inside Out
