The creator's curse is a cycle wherein an artist's skill grows during the course of a project, meaning each time you create your best work, it is no longer your best work. Your talents grow, reshape and change as you work toward your ideal creation, but upon retrospect your perception changes causing your opinion of your product to wither and leading you to begin the process anew.
We call it a curse, but it's really what drives us to grow and to keep creating. Anything else would lead to stagnation.
