Thank you. I really never thought of that, or maybe I didn't realize it. A lot the time I think of "successful" creators as superhuman in a way, impervious to these things. I watch a lot of art casts, interviews, etc, and everyone typically seems very cool and in control. I never stepped back to think that they worked hard and trained to hone those skills as well the artistic skills.
This year is all about getting over some long overdue B.S. that's been standing in the way of creating stuff for people to enjoy. You're absolutely right about it being my choice. And I definitely don't want to chose to stop. Tomorrow is a new day, and I'm going to try to have a new attitude about this whole endeavor.
