Splash du Jour: Monday

I was reading an article written by author Jennie Nash.
The topic was Ten Tips: How To Be Creative.
I really like her 8th point:
8. Have faith. In order to get beyond the doubt inherent in making anything – is it any good? Should I give it up? – it helps to have faith in the whole enterprise of creativity. You have to believe that painting matters, writing matters, making clay angels matters.

Have a great [creative] Monday!

That is good advice. I fid that I'm my own harshest critic, and I always feel that everything I write could be better, no matter how many times I reread or rewite it. Perhaps, if I left well enough alone, I'd be happier with the end result. Perhaps my zombie masterpiece wouldn't be eternally stagnated at 80 pages.
