Silencing My Inner Critic

This image is one I created while exploring my Inner Critic.  You know, that little voice that you hear saying things like, "this looks terrible, you can't draw, you should just quit..."
I gave her some space on the page but made sure she was 
contained so that her negativity could not reach me. 

 This was my message to her:

"Your words can't reach me now.  
I know you are still there but I have silenced you.  
Your negativity can stay there with you, keep it to yourself. 
 I have no need for it, it does not help me any 
and really gets old after awhile."

Do you have an inner critic when you create?  What do you do to work through the negative thoughts?
