Artist Way 2019-2020

artistwThis year’s E-circle Artist Way group starts next Monday and the anticipation is growing. I’ve just returned from a month in Italy and Greece and my brain is stuttering in low gear. I’m eager to put pen to page, clean out the sludge and awaken the starry-eyed dreamer within. We’re reading Julia Cameron’s “Finding Water” from the Artist Way series along with Elizabeth Gilbert’s “Big Magic.” Each year I chose a project to write 3 pages on daily, along with the Morning Pages, in a genre outside my wheelhouse. Initially I experience an impending sense of doom over dipping my toes into unknown waters. However, I know from past years that, a few weeks in, the hard brown bud of initial idea will soften and split. Crinkled curls of color will slowly unfurl into full blooming vibrant life. This leaping off of a creative cliff is one I find equally thrilling and terrifying. Wish me luck!
