How I Use Daily Pages & Down Time To Get More Writing Done

How I Use Daily Pages & Down Time To Get More Writing Done

As I mentioned in my post from earlier this week, The Artist’s Way is a book I’ve had to go back to every now and then again when I let the life stifle me, and the creativity I want to share. This is my third read and since I’ve missed blogging I thought doing a week by week journey of the book would be a good way to combine both of them. I don’t agree with all of what the…

Looking For My Creative Self

Looking For My Creative Self

My creative self has been buried, lost, found, re-buried, burned alive, abandoned, found again, and the last few years has been kinda lonely. These emotions are not unfamiliar to creatives.

When You’re Stuck Between Winter and Spring

When You’re Stuck Between Winter and Spring

If you’re from the northeast, or really anywhere that experiences wild seasonal weather four times a year, you’ll be aware of that time between winter and spring that almost seem caught in time. It feels like it’s stuck, or at least barely moving. An example–here in Central New York yesterday it was in the sixties and we had our windows open last night. Today? It’s snowing. And sure, the big piles of snow are finally melting but now it’s just…
