creators, advice about haters via the brilliant Felicia Day

We watched episode 6 of the Guild last night. One storyline is about a game creator who can't create anything new because he knows he'll be attacked by haters. Felicia Day's character tells him that when he lets haters keep him from creating, they aren't just hurting him—they're hurting the people who love his work.

Which is so very true. We don't create for haters, we don't create despite haters, and we don't create to prove anything to haters. We create for lovers.

It's a good day to tell some artists you love their work.
