She uses great anecdotes to explain that works of art are created with the help of a being outside ourselves - a genius, a muse, god, whatever you want to call it. We as the artist are not completely responsible for what we create, and because of that, we need not be so hard on ourselves when we do not perform or create as well as want. Her main point was that as an artist, your job is to show up and do your work to the best of your ability and whether or not your genius arrives to add that extra spark is up to it, not you. So don't be so hard on yourself.

[Art is about the journey, not about the destination]
