Don’t Beat yourself up Be Brave

It’s January 7th 2018 and I haven’t written anything for Medium since before Christmas.

There are a dozen reasons, not least of which was having the flu and needing to spend time with loved ones.

There are loads more excuses.

I feel like the student who hasn’t done his homework and has to face his tutor. The musician who hasn’t practised, the actor who hasn’t learned his lines. The trouble is I’m facing me and I’m way harsher than any critic and I know exactly what I have or haven’t done.
