Build Your Body of Work
If you’re making work on a pretty regular basis, you may be ready to improve your focus and build your body of work. One of the major obstacles to this stage is managing reactions to the work you’ve already produced, reactions from other folks, but more importantly from within, from those inner critics. Especially as you get ready to move to a new level with your creativity, the weeds of creative blocks and procrastination can appear to crowd out your efforts as a consistent working artist.
