Sheila’s weekly update 75: Dealing with the “f” word

No Comments

How do you feel about the “f” word? Failure, it’s hard isn’t it and we are so often our harshest critics. This week was a bit up and down for me. I know not getting accepted for things is part and parcel of being an artist. And I know that most decisions are totally subjective, and not a personal attack on me .Still, when you don’t get accepted it can be hard, and that’s when self doubt can creep in. However, despite getting a couple of “thanks, but no thanks” this week I did find inspiration from an unexpected opportunity to hear the amazing Bernadine Evaristo talking about her life and work and her attitude to that “f” word.
