Lately, all of my personal writing has been shit. Every time I attempt something in this space, I am disappointed, frustrated. It is full of navel-gazing, self-indulgent crap.
I have been stuck in my art as well. I left a painting on my easel for too long, one I had been struggling with. Every time I looked at it - which was often because it was sitting out in the open - I felt discouraged and doubtful about my abilities.
But I am slowly easing back into things.
I took that painting off the easel.
I played around with some supplies to create my One Little Word album covers.
I carved some stamps.
I always manage to get back to my creative self, but the prospect can seem daunting when all signs point to having lost it.
I have to learn to trust in myself.
