There comes a fork in the road that happens at least once – probably many times – in a creative project. It’s the moment when it seems like a much better idea to just freaking abandon your project. To just ditch it and all the difficulties and start something new. Something fresh. Something EASY.
To pop back to the beginning of a creative project where everything is all rosy and fun and exciting! To abandon the part where you’re humbled. Where you’re faced with the limitations of your skills, talents and publishability.
In this episode of Stumbling Toward Genius, I share a moment where I, like many of us, just wanted to find my place. To find a place for my book and for me. And how that didn’t seem likely to happen.
- How I coped with rejection after rejection.
- What helps to choose ourselves.
- Creative Competency: Commitment Points – being able to recommit again and again.
