The challenge in anything creative is getting bored and trying things that don’t work. This leads to frustration in many cases and out go the brushes! Desire for creative growth is normal, frustration (and undernourishment, too) are normal for some. Others learn from the experience, reflect that it may have been a premature move outside of a comfort zone that is at fault, perhaps a too-rapid jump in their creative insights.
Consistency is the price we pay for creating work that others like to a standard. Constancy is the search for the ‘other’ that defines who we seek to become. Since this is essentially an unlikely arrival, we can only marvel that we continue to strive.
