I tend to feel the same overwhelming impostor syndrome that many artists do. I worry that my work isn’t creative or original or meaningful, and it gives me a lot to think about in terms of why I do what I do.

Getting to submit to and be a part of the Things As They Aren’t magazine definitely made me feel out of place, but I also got a sense of great pride from being published alongside so many talented creators. This is another great art community that I am proud to even be orbiting near.
