Imposter Syndrome

It happens to us all. The idea that someone will tap you on the shoulder and say “There’s been a mistake, you aren’t a real artist.” Then you sigh and agree and hand in your artistic licence. But even beyond

It comes from thinking everyone else knows what they are doing, whereas no-one really does. In reality, Art-is-Play and mostly just messing around.

It can quickly lead to Writers-Block as you consider yourself unworthy or forget how to write. Focus instead on your Creative-Routine and growing as an artist. Focus-on-Process-not-the-end-goal.
