Episode 10: Doubts & Drafts

In this episode we’re talking doubts and drafts. We get into how to find joy in the mess to help counter the doubts that come up in early drafts and stages of projects. We discuss sacrificial offerings to the creative gods, get a little bit woo about the process, talk about uncovering the story and art beneath the initial draft, and following our curiosity. Then we dive into celebrating milestones along the way as well as our processes in general, and about the doubts that come up when you consider sharing your work with the world. We draw parallels in our work between Corinne not being able to edit words that haven’t been written, and Toby’s drawing a single line to simply get started and work with. And finally, we talk about the concept of the unknown, and how sometimes trusting that you don’t have all the answers is actually a good thing.

We’d love to hear from you! What are some of your doubts that come up in the early stages and drafts of a project? 

Heads up if you have little ones around, occasionally some colorful language slips into our dialog.

Thanks for listening!
