Sure those things are true, but the REAL REASON for my sudden stopping of postings and creative updates is that I got scared. Sharing my work with the world is a big deal for me (and many other creatives), but pushing myself to market it and sell it, well that's a whole other thing.
I just posted the previous blog post, as it sat in the 'drafts' folder for 2 weeks! I didn't edit it or add anything to it... for some reason, the fact that it contained the etsy link, paralyzed me completely!! A million self-doubting voices (some with rather reasonable messages) vying for my attention. So today I pushed "publish live' without giving it another thought. I made sure it was not going to post the update either on FB or Twitter, but it is here on the blog. Chances are --and I am crossing my fingers hard -- that nobody will see either of these, and that gives me a small measure of relief!
Movement = Risk ... and I guess I am still learning to be brave in this area of my life. Cheers to pressing the 'publish live' button one more time: hooray!
