Finding My Inner Artist
It’s Monday morning and day 2 of me exploring my inner artist. Over a year ago I received a birthday gift from a dear friend and mentor. It was, “The Artist’s Way,” by Julia Cameron. I started it a few weeks later, but never got far. You know how it goes, work, work, traveling, work work. That didn’t make time for finding me or my inner artist.
So, I made a commitment to myself this weekend that I would start the 12-week course back up. It is my 2010 goal. There are two core requirements, as Julia shares. The first is morning pages. So far, I’m hating the fact that I have to get up even earlier to write three pages of my stream of consciousness. However, I have noticed that I’m much more alert now. For a Monday, I’m pretty chipper.
The second requirement is the artist’s date. I’m hoping that I can make this happen on Wednesday. It’s a date with just me and my inner artist. Hope she likes me.
Are there exercises that you’ve done to find your creativity again? If so, please share!
