I really don’t like the framing here. To be blunt, this person is being a jerk.
For a real discussion on the process of making art of any kind, I recommend reading [Art and Fear](https://www.amazon.com/Art-Fear-Observations-Rewards-Artmaki...) by David Bayles and Ted Orland. It’s a lot more insightful about human nature than calling people lairs for falling into the same patterns that have existed since Art has existed.
I’m a fan of the audio book but definitely listen to the sample first. The narrator may not be to your taste.
Art & Fear: Observations On the Perils (and Rewards) of Artmaking

I can't do the description justice, so I'll just leave this here:

There are a few good books on the subject that might help. I've been going through a spell right now where I can't seem to get myself to work. It's not that I don't have the drive but more that I can't find a subject. Barnett Newman talks about it in Painters Painting "what are we going to paint" in any case I think i'm going to go pick up Art & Fear a book that helped me out last time I felt like this. I lent it to a friend when they needed help but I'd rather them hold onto and just get a new one. Not sure why there isn't much on youtube maybe books just help to penetrate interior problems more effectively as a medium.
Art & Fear, it’s a thing (and a book).
It takes extreme dedication and an iron will to keep up a full time artistic practice.
If anyone is interested in the working/day to day of artists I suggest the following books:
