Needlework

4

I always feel like i have a "book" in me, but when I try to sit down and write my mind goes blank! I cant help thinking everything I write is utter crap.

Also I want to be better at needlework and stuff like that but I'm so clumsy! How do I just get better at creative/artistic stuff?

I've always believed that 'inspiration' is the key to most creativity in life. As a professional artist, I am still constantly in search of that tiny spark which, I know, will ignite my passion and energies.

You need to relax and not force yourself to create that story or piece of needlework because you may believe something inside of you says it 'has to happen' right there and then.

Which sort of writers inspire you? Would you see yourself as a future J.K. Rowling or a modern day Jane Austen? Read up on the great works of literature or, better still, browse through some of the short stories in magazines and papers; most of these have been submitted by people just like you. They can be the springboard for bigger things ahead.

Don't assume everything you write is rubbish. Even if an editor rejects it, that still doesn't mean it's no good. You really need to persist … rather like a terrier with a rag. Believe me, I ought to know!

Contemporary embroidery is also an art not to be sneezed at. Have a look at the V&A museum or, if you can't get there, go to the library and read up on their history of great art and crafts. I am sure you can find art & craft fairs locally to give you inspiration (plus a few handy tips!) especially as the festive season approaches.

If you think you 'have it in you' then, frankly, you obviously have. Sit down, take a deep breath, and tell yourself you can do it!

Good luck!
