I have been, if I’m going to be completely honest, avoiding moving into this next phase. As Tom said, this is the hardest part, but most of it is just me not wanting to feel frustrated as I learn this new medium or "fail" because my work isn’t how I’m envisioning it or "good enough" to, mostly myself. Hello again imposter syndrome. But, here I go.
