53. My mom hates my art and my writing
She thinks art should be pretty and match the decor. I think it should be challenging and make you see things in a new way. And she only reads truecrime/serial killer books. That's not what I write. But if she reads anymore of my unfinished stories again I'm gonna slap her - they aren't finished, edited, or meant to be read yet.

I like your artwork. But people have different tastes. Maybe your art just doesn't appeal to your mom, doesn't mean it's bad.
