A good piece of advice when you reach a plateau in your creative work. Forge on and don't give up. Ira says:
It's going to take you a while. It's normal to take a while and you just have to fight your way through that. OK? You will be fierce, you will be a warrior, and you will make things that aren't as good as you know in your heart you want them to be. And you will just make one after another.
