Storyteller's Journey

       Creative Confidence

My journey as a writer has taught me numerous truths about literature and life. One of the most profound facts I've learned is that the more creative you are, the more confident you become; and the more confident you become, the more creative you continue to be...and on and on.

This concept of repetitive creativity feeding one's confidence is not quite the same as "practice makes perfect," since what I'm referring to is not so much about the quality of my writing only, as it is about how I feel about my writing.

I know numerous creatives who have pursued their chosen art form for years, and yet, they still feel extremely insecure about their work. We're all aware that creative types are prone to a plethora of insecurities, but we should feel good about what we create...at least some of the time!

I've had Creative Confidence listed on my blog schedule to write for weeks. However, just this morning, I discovered a link that takes this topic and discusses it further. Here's the link from Ira Glass: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PbC4gqZGPSY

Do you have any thoughts to add to this topic of creative confidence?
