Failing is Easy. Do It Well.

Failures, repeated failures, are finger posts on the road to achievement. One fails forward toward success. — C. S. Lewis
We are surrounded by opportunities to fail at. We judge ourselves when we can’t meet societal expectations. We blame ourselves when we don’t fulfil our high aspirations. For creatives, the “fear of failure” is numbing - every such mind is then inundated with suggestions to overcome this fear. Ironically, the suggestions come from the same society whose unreasonable expectations label these minds as “failures”.
In this issue, I feature the essays that, in no way, preach how such fears can be, should be overcome. Rather they attempt to persuade that it is all fine to fail.

One Final Inspiration

When an idea strikes follow that pure inspiration. That pure untapped creative energy all the way to fruition. That’s what we do as writers. We channel a stroke of pure brilliance / insanity and turn it into something tangible.
