You are creating worlds, people and scenarios! Why would the process of creation be easy? Why would that process be easy? For some, it is easy! But sometimes that journey back to creativity and creation of the worlds in your head take detours. There are road blocks. There are apprehensions! But as a writer, they may always come–like the tides.
The thing you will learn is how to push back with the waves come to overtake. The thing that pushes the waves back the quickest–a pen.
As this year speeds to a close, I leave you with one thing: belief in self.
The path is of the arts is fraught with doubts. Filled with second-guessing and the evil, diabolical non support of the people who say they love you.
But, what I want to tell you with 7 calendar days left of this year is stop listening to that does not serve, assist, value or help.
Stop feeding that which hurts.
This is so often the most difficult thing! That type of thinking hobbles, cripples and will kill anything creative—or different in you! I have had to discover this in my own self this week. My creative achievements are not based on the opinions of other people. My success is not determined by what other people think about it. There will always be a salty-select to remind you of failures, setbacks and other useless shenanigans.
Stop feeding what hurts.
Make the decision to give up the things which weigh you down–and soar.
