Your going to love and relate to Lucy's demons so much that I'm sure you'll soon get to love the nasty little naysayers in your mind, plus givemuch more credit to the hero who can get you to your creative process more often and more easily!  Also, the cover of this book is extraordinary: Inspiration for your future covers!
