Any time I’m faced with a stumbling block I try to turn it on its head and see it from the opposite viewpoint. If I have indeed created my finest work then any new work I create can be totally experimental. I have a free rein to really indulge in something mad without necessarily caring about the actual outcome.
If I mess up then it doesn’t matter because I have already created such strong work in 2014 that I can afford to waste the rest of the year. I was wrong yesterday to think of my success as binding in any way. Instead I should think of it as liberating.
I really have nothing to lose.
