Would you speak to a child like that?

This beautiful idea comes courtesy of a writer I follow on social media whose name has completely escaped me. They recommended we creatives pin up a photo of ourselves as children where we can see it as we write, paint, sculpt, make and do. This is me at 10, writing and illustrating my first book. When I am annoyed at myself, when I can’t write anything, or I feel like giving up, I look at this kid and try telling her she’s rubbish, or telling her she should give up. I can’t do it, obviously, so I keep writing.
