Overcoming the blank page

Nothing is more terrifying than a blank white page (well, perhaps that is an exaggeration, but not by much.)

It’s easy to be overcome with doubt when you’re faced with a gorgeous new sketchbook: what can you possibly make that will be worthy of it?

The answer is, of course, plenty!

A saying that I’ve come to love is “better done than perfect.” In the moment, you might be tempted to dismiss your ideas as not good enough. You might try to overthink what you want to do, and might eventually talk yourself out of doing anything at all.

Remember, a blank page is there to serve you, not to judge you. So put that brush/pencil/pen to paper and love whatever comes out of it. Especially if you’re trying to capture a moment during a trip, your first instincts will often be best.
