“One Question: Talent” at Balticon 2012 (pt 2 of 2)

The episode wraps up our presentation of the answers to the question (which we began in this episode):

“Is talent something you’re born with, or is it something you acquire?”

I asked thirteen authors that question.  In Part I we heard from six of them and in this episode we hear from the final seven.  Again, Brion and I can’t help ourselves and we wax philosophical about the insights offered in each one.

I agree with Scott! The answer is “yes.”

I could not agree with you guys more! When I draw something people ALWAYS say “Wow, you’re so talented. I wish I could draw like that.” I always say, “You could draw like this if you worked at it.” They never believe me, but they should see my sketchbook from when I started at art school and compare it with my sketchbook from my graduating quarter at art school. My talent didn’t change, I drew in my sketchbook for at least an hour every day for a few years and studied art and learned from it. I still have a long way to go with my drawing skills, but I know I can get there if I just keep WORKING at it. Thanks for these cool bonus Balticon episodes guys. I really enjoyed them!
