Releasing The Deadwood

All of us have deadwood in our creative lives that holds us back.

Maybe it’s that set of expensive new brushes you bought three years ago but still haven’t used.

Maybe it’s a friend you used to have so much in common with but now barely know.

Maybe it’s a community you joined 15 months back but have yet to contribute a single word to.

Sidestep the urge to analyse, reason or blame.

Instead, be honest, and just accept what is.

Release the deadwood and make space in your harbour for the new.
