I so needed to hear this interview today. I loved that she said don't wait for the creativity to be there just show up and see what creativity is there. Thanks so much Andrea and Jamie

Thanks, you two. That was very sweet. I now have a new image for how I can be creative - in short bursts - which really feels manageable.

A wonderful interview. I especially like the idea of when you get scared or overwhelmed. To go back and connect with the real reason you are doing this. Gave me something to think about.

LOVE this interview; it really resonated with me. I especially love all the techniques for dealing with those nasty gremlins. Thanks so much for reminding me that when I look at someone else's finished product, I don't see what they went through to get there! That's a big issue for me -- comparing myself and my work to others. I've almost stopped blog hopping because of it. Now I can start again! Thank you!

And I can't wait to read that book!

I think the gremlins have been running the show for the last couple of weeks over here, but I'm beginning to get my strength back. Thanks Andrea and Jamie.

One thing that particularly hit me was when Andrea talked about feeling like other people have that perfect creative process and you are just not good enough. I know I feel that way. the funny thing is, I am consciously trying to demystify the creative process on my blog... but you know, I still get comments about how people could never do what I do, they're still only seeing the end product for some reason. Hmm. The other end of that spectrum is when people are concerned for my self confidence because I am willing to expose my gremlins.

Well. I guess I just have to keep trucking. Sometimes those gremlins are very hard to see past.
