Creative U-Turns

“At some point we must relinquish the joys and privileges accorded to the emotional invalid.” – Julia Cameron

The capacity to recover from a creative u-turn, a setback, a scathing criticism, is imperative for a successful creative life. There is no time to waste brooding.

While it is important to acknowledge the hurt that accompanies such a bump in the road, it is critical to get back on the bike and ride on, lest a brief interruption turn into wasted years.
