No matter what creative endeavor you pursue, be it painting or poetry or writing or some kind of sculpture or anything else artistic, other people are going to appreciate you getting past the self-doubt and completing your project. Make sure you do your creative work. Not for your sake. Not for art’s sake. Do your creative work because it blesses those in the world. We can even be so bold as to believe our creativity blesses those who are not of the world. This makes art miraculous and it is a wonder that we can participate.
