Do it because you are called to do it.
Write, paint, create because you feel inspired to do it.
Forget about success or failure for a moment.
Elizabeth Gilbert of Eat, Pray, Love acclaim illuminates how to get over the creative angst that tends to plague writers, artists and everyone really.
She says we can choose to stop thinking that creativity comes fully from the self and start thinking, feeling, knowing that it comes through a collaboration between us and a mysterious force outside of us.
If we adopt this mindset then we take less credit both in success and failure, relieving us from some of the pressure that can come with creative endeavours.
All we need to do then is simply show up for our part.
