My present self has a tendency to ask: Why must you create? Why can’t you just be? When I actively avoid working on my Big Thing, food tastes better and movies on the Lifetime channel seem unusually compelling.

Today we are pressured by social media to present an artificial self, in the form of posts and tweets, YouTube videos, and Instagrams. Some people mold and remold their online selves, the better to receive likes and thumbs-up, tweets, and other forms of approval.

They are a way for us to order our experience, and to connect and amplify the moments of our lives. But too often they remain obscured by the demands and distractions of everyday life, and by fears of failure.

“I think one thing they could ask themselves would be: ‘Would I still do this thing if, when it came out, it was attributed to Anonymous? And I didn’t get any money from it?’ To me that’s the fundamental question that it all boils down to.”
