I struggle every day as a "creative". It's a painstaking process. I know a lot of my stuff, especially on this blog, is not the best in the world. My grammar and punctuation sucks, I repeat the same phases too many times, some of my images are not quite there; but I put it out there anyway. Why? It's the work. It's the work of being creative and if I don't put it out there then I won't have room in my brain to produce something that's even better. It's hard to keep going when you know what you've just put out kinda sucks, but at least you have the wherewithal to know and the capacity to change it. Surround yourself with the right people and just work your ass off!
Here's 2 minutes from someone who has been there, done that, and can say it much better than I. Thanks to the girls at Old Made Good for sharing it with me and for living it.
