The Artist’s Way
I’ve started reading “The Artist’s Way” by Julia Cameron. Currently I’m on Week 3 and already seeing improvements. I have written every day for over a year now, but through the course I’m also completing the morning pages, artist’s date, and tasks for the week.
Morning pages is a daily task where I write three pages in my thoughts in a journal in stream of consciousness. What am I thinking about that is taking focus away from my creative endeavors? An artist’s date is something fun I do with my inner child, like making a new dish or attempting to make a chocolate truffle castle and ending up with a pyramid instead because the chocolate walls collapsed.
I complied a list of the stories, poems, musicals, and other ideas. Guess how many short story ideas I have? Nearly 70. I’m off to work on a short story.
