Even when you have nothing left to say, you’ll be surprised - there’s always something else to write down.

The crazy maker drama is really just an excuse to not take authentic creative risks.
If you can find humor, you can overcome criticism.
Play with your ideas. Have an Artist Date.
Take the small action that fits into the life you’ve got.
Name someone who is your believing mirror. Imagine what encouragement they would tell you.
