Deliver your project.

There’s not much more I can say, other than to encourage you that this is the hardest part.

My dark night of the soul was stuffing envelopes following my Kickstarter funding. Sitting at home, planning, editing, promoting… That’s all in your comfort zone, and if not, you can psych yourself up, and get it over and done with as soon as possible. Framing and printing photos and the self-doubt that that brings, that’s hard. Laying out and printing a zine, that’s hard. making things happen takes a lot of perseverance and a healthy amount of “I just need to get it done.” At some point you’re going to need to admit to yourself that your work, your project, is as good as it’s going to get, and it’s time to make it happen. 

Questions:

  1. How good is good enough?
  2. How can we combat self-doubt?
  3. What has your artistic dark night of the soul been?
