A Wonderfully True Quote Re the Vulnerability Creativity Demands

Powerful quote from Sim's Little Bets

" I think it's necessary," Pixar Director Pete Docter says about the inevitable self-doubt that accompanies any creative process. "On Monsters, Inc, I really wore that. I would come home at the end of a difficult day in story and I would think, I'm a fraud, a failure. I don't know what I am doing. And now I realize, well, that's the way it is."

Amen, the creative process forces one to confront the prospect of failure, a sudden lack of orientation where one is not sure what comes next.
