To All Creative Souls . . .

"If you find yourself asking yourself 
(and your friends), 'Am I really a writer?  
Am I really an artist?', chances are you are.  
The counterfeit innovator 
is wildly self-confident.         
The real one is scared to death."
-Steven Pressfield, The War of Art

Are you tackling a new creative project?  Have you been procrastinating getting it off the ground?  Fear can stop us up and paralyze us from forward movement.

Let me encourage you to push ahead on your project...

"Our doubts are traitors, 
and make us lose the good we oft might win,
by fearing to attempt."
-Wm. Skakespeare, Measure For Measure

And for a little smile to set you on your way...

"The greater the artist, the greater the doubt.  
Perfect confidence is granted 
to the less talented as a consolation prize."
-Robert Hughes

Now, soldier on!!!
