17 two questions

17/365 Lynda Barry on the 2 questions: Is this good? Does this suck?

“The two questions came from trying to write something good and not getting very far because I had forgotten that trying to write something good before I write anything at all is like refusing to give birth unless you know for sure it is going to be a very good baby."

Yep. Those questions get in the way. My solution is generally to just keep creating. Yes, it's good to evaluate your work but probably not useful to do it daily. Move on, keep creating. Wait until you have a body of work to answer "Is the good? Does this suck?" Then you're likely to have work that fits in both categories.
