Nurturing Creativity - Week 26

This week the card is to:

Name Your Demons

The inner (or sometimes outer) voices that hold us back from trying/completing/sharing our art. The fear of failure isn't that big a deal for me any more. At least not for the creative process. The selling process.....well.....that's a WHOLE different ballgame! Just venturing into that arena and hearing some of the old tapes running. But, I've gotten much better at telling them to shut up and I then drift along in my own little happy world....doing what I need to do.

My main demon now is feeling selfish spending so much time in my studio. I'm trying to overcome that and have limited success. I do OK until someone makes some "urgent" demand on my time. Usually that demand takes a big chunk out of the middle of my creative time. I'm working on saying no but I'll have to be honest and admit that it is difficult. Still, what is life without a challenge??? LOL!

Still haven't gotten to posting some of the fun stuff we did when Wil was here but I'll be getting to it hopefully this week.

Whoah, you have been catching up. Don't feel selfish, you are entitled to time in your studio!
