The quote is from Anne Lamott’s book on writing, Bird by Bird, but I think her advice applies to any creative endeavour.

The drawing is based on a wonderful photo over on Roberta’s lovely blog. I saw this some time ago, and asked her permission to use the photo as reference, which she kindly agreed to. Thank you and hope I’ve done ok with it.

    lovely sketch!

  2. Thank you for your comments. If you haven’t read the Bird by Bird book, I can highly recommend it. She is both funny and practical – a perfect mix for me.
