I'm slowing making my way through the Artist's Way.... I think some of my weeks are lasting as long as 10-15 days? hence... I'm only starting the Chapter marked Week 5...
I decided at the start it was going to take as long as it took.. so long as I stick with it til the end. I am happy to say it's made all the difference to have a check-in buddy, my friend Xanthe who's joined me for this adventure she's into the Dramatic Arts and a prolific writer of reviews and articles and attending performances and acting, directing and teaching... and a Mum to a dear little girl... she has her own blog http://www.xsentertainme.wordpress.com Xanthe has her creative plate very very full, and I admire her tanacity and courage to follow her dreams.
So.... how am I doing with this 12 week course? I'm enjoying it... and well... failing a little bit too... eg. last week was meant to be 'reading deprivation' no reading... of anything!! And while I can see that could actually be very helpful for my creative self... it seems I'm a bit too insecure in myself at this moment to rise to such a challenge, I'm addicted to my self help books and astrology newletter info, not to mention email and friends on facebook and affirmations by Louise Hay.. or any number of the various books I have surrounded myself with... and the Color Wisdom Cards... the list .. goes... on.... mmm, I may have to try it a day at a time... the thought of no reading for a week just freaked me out.
and the Artist Dates? I'm not really having much of a go at those either! It's interesting to be telling 'the world' this... as I reread my words I am reminded to not be ripping myself off so much! I'm doing this course for my own benefit... not to prove anything to anyone else... so when am I going to show up for myself?
... with that... I think I'll sign off,
here is a few pic's of our new little family memeber, "Aura" a 2.5 year old Chihuahua x Foxy.
