To whomever needs to hear this: I just took a big swing, gave it my all, and missed.
I’m not gonna lie, it sucks.
The details don’t matter, but this does: If I had known it would work at the outset, it wouldn’t have been worth doing. Making art requires taking real risks. Courage isn’t the absence of fear, but its answer. You can’t get somewhere new without venturing into the unknown.
Now, please excuse me while I go eat a burrito… and get back to work.
