Been criticized this week?
Felt sick to your stomach today?
Has someone told you recently why what you’re doing won’t work?
Do you often find yourself thinking, “This might not work?”
Have you spent any time wading through uncertainty this year?
Have you worked on anything that made you uncomfortable this month?
Do you remember the last time you took a legitimate risk?
The last time you got butterflies when pressing “publish”?
The last time you had to close your eyes when pressing “upload”?
The last time you actually put yourself out there when pressing “send”?
Do you remember the last time you failed?
Or more importantly, the last time you got back up and tried again?
If you can’t answer the majority of these questions with a resounding “Yes”, then chances are you probably haven’t made any art recently.
