Sometimes, I think I put too much pressure on myself to try and turn out an awesome product. I forget to have fun with it.
I think it’s better to be okay with the idea of not being the greatest writer, etc. in the world, rather than stressing out over whether or not other people will like what I’m doing.
I believe this because, most of the time when I stop worrying about the ramifications of what I’m doing artistically, I come up with the best ideas that people seem to really like regardless.
The worst thing in the world is to work super-hard on something that you end up hating because it took so long…and then not even have folks like it very much. Likewise, it’s ALWAYS fun to have just been doing your thing without thinking of what other folks might say, and then have them come up to you and tell you how awesome your stuff is regardless.
I’m going to try and keep that in mind. It’s not the destination that counts half as much as the journey. 🙂
