"The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference."

Ira's comments are spot on. The thing of it is, beginners do not *want* to hear this. Whether it's impatience or arrogance or whatever, they want it NOW.I know I did all those years ago. And after getting negative feedback, I would stop for a while. Then for some internal reason, I would try again. And again.After decades of this start-and-stop process, I finally feel that I *might* be hitting my stride. Maybe that's a big hurdle...that I can say "might" instead of something more definite. And I may stop yet again. But I do know now that I will never stop completely. And maybe that's what is at the bottom of the creative process.
