Most creative exercises are performed alone. We pour heart and soul into our art and hope it’s good enough. So, when it comes time to release our darlings the thought can be daunting. Our darlings are perfect and precious, and others may be harsh critics. We can internalize a judgment of our work and construe it as a judgment of ourselves. If we are lucky, we have a host of family and friends to bolster us when we doubt and encourage us when we want to quit.
Who is on your cheer squad? Who encourages you to “go on”?
Keep on writing.
