Have you ever considered who you have at your side when you are creating? Is it the muse, the critic, your third grade art teacher?
Who would you like to have at your side? Mentor. Muse. Creator. All of the above?
That would be my preference. All of the inspired and inspiring words from beloved and benevolent voices, and none of the negative and critical ones.
Criticism and judgment do not help in the creation process. They might afterward, but during, they should be locked out.
Who is by your side?
