This quote speaks so loudly to me.

"To live a creative life we must lose our fear of being wrong."  Joseph C. Pearce

YES!!!!!

Fear of being wrong, making a mistake, something not being just-so, this is always what holds me back. I can usually see a finished product in my head, but fear of it not being so when I put my hands on it is what does me in every time.

For as long as I can remember the mantra all the grownups in my family drummed into me was "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again."  Being afraid to not be perfect was never a part of my experience.

That's one of my favorite quotes Sue. Thanks for reminding me of it.

Required reading when I went back to art school as a Grammy, was Art & Fear by David Bayles and Ted Orland. It addresses many reasons why we get stuck.

Another great read, that is a little more esoteric, is called The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron
