    Talented… or just persistent?

    Revealing the Popular Misconception known as ‘Talent.’ I sit at the table, sketching. My fingers smudge the graphite, turning the simple sketch into an actually somewhat acceptable drawing. Someone comes up behind me, looking over my shoulder at the picture. “Wow.” They say, admiring the horse I’ve drawn, awe and longing filling their voice. “You’re so talented.” I force myself to keep from facepalming and smile placidly. “Thanks.” They nod, continuing on down the table, and I sigh. Gritting my teeth in frustration, I grip my pencil, now wishing I’d thought to take the time to give them a lecture on my so-called ‘talent.’
