I've had this quote in my head for weeks. Read it in another blog and it rings true for me whenever I feel discouraged or have a creative block. Wanted to share it, in hopes that it may encourage you too, no matter where your creativity lies.
“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit.
