Doubt and Regret: Twin Destroyers of Creativity
What a fantastic day it has been for me. I was so down after getting my galley proofs and realizing I couldn’t make substantial changes anymore and what I was reading was what was going to be in the final book. And then, the electricity was out last night so I got three hours behind on proofing. And so, I had all kinds of bad feelings going to bed. And then, today I read two wonderful blog posts.
Mike Dellosso is the author of “Darkness Follows” a truly frightening and great read and in his post today, he brought up the issue of regrets. Read it and follow the comments. It was, for me, very encouraging.
And then, over on Rabbit Room, what an encouraging post on the power of doubt in an artist’s life. Read it and weep with understanding, compassion, hope, and joy.
