I am on a lifelong path as a creative person. That path has many twists and turns. Sometimes I feel good about where I am. Other times, not so much. But even if I feel lost, I am still on the path. I am always on the path. And even if I feel like I'm slipping backward, I'm actually moving forward because I'm continually learning about my craft. Indeed I learn as much or more from when I'm feeling lost as when I'm feeling good about my writing. It's all part of my creative process. And I trust the process. ~mantra for the creative soul.
