Makes me feel a little better when I think about how much faster I’d like my creative skills to grow into something that looks more mature to the outside world. This isn’t a race to see who can mature into a full tree first. It’s about cultivating your skills at a steady, appropriate rate.
Through the awesome times of bumper crop creativity and the painful frustration of drought, keep stretching outwards.
