Fear captured my imagination during writing:
What if we never make the record we have in mind? Never share the story? Never speak the emotion or message?
Being unable to judge where we are is terrifying. Even with experience, the disorientation of the unknown can be traumatic. But in order to create, instead of make, we need to repeatedly go to that space.
Understanding that going to fearful spaces is necessary for good art means giving up a certain level of control. I try to remind myself of that as frequently as possible.
