Your Inner Critic
My son bought me this book for my birthday - Your Inner Critic Is A Big Jerk; And Other Truths About Being Creative by Danielle Krysa, and it sure is pertinent. I am the worst for beating myself up and listening to my inner critic ..... who has a very loud voice sometimes! I have her three other books, so this adds nicely to my collection. If you, like me recognize that feeling of being an impostor and you let one negative comment drown out a hundred positive ones, then this supportive and practical book is for you. There is also lots of useful advice for those who may feel, or may have been made to feel, inferior because they are 'self taught'. I didn't get an art degree - I was trained as a fashion, knitwear designer originally, so effectively I am classed as self taught. I am working my way through the pages with plenty of light bulbs flashing above my head. Recommended reading for creatives everywhere.
