Today, let’s reflect on what we’ve learned – or tried to absorb – so far.

  • We have permission to make mistakes
  • We own our feelings and are honest with ourselves
  • We create with a sense of wonder
  • We commit to keeping our creative agreements with ourselves

Have you felt any change since the start of this year? I have. I’m much gentler with myself about my creative shortcomings. I accept that personal success will come in their own time. I don’t judge the merit of my writing on any basis other than quality. I don’t worry whether my work will be interesting to or accepted by anyone else. I don’t have to be any kind of writer other than who I am or create any kind of story other than what I want.
