When I tried to type this blog post on my computer, I got stuck. I kept deleting everything I wrote, and starting over again. Sometimes, I spend hours writing and rewriting the same sentence, even though I've taught students in my writing classes that it's much more effective just to keep writing and edit later. I KNOW it's true. Why is it so hard to do?
When I draw...
There were times I thought I'd never be able to write or make art. I was so stuck. And I still struggle, BUT now I really do make art! I finished a short film! I've got a great team working on a feature film. WHOOT! And I share my art with other people. Like YOU. Thanks so much!
I can't expect everyone to be willing to accept my work at the very last minute. But this time, Good Enough got me where I needed to go.
