Day Two – The Artist’s Way

1 Comment

I’ve been hemming and hawing about going back to school for a while now.  Part of me felt like it was the only option.  I had a practical career picked out.  It’s something I think I could be good at and wouldn’t hate.  Then we needed to replace a car.  So here I am.  For the next six years we’re going to continue as we have before.

After that?  Who knows, but at that point one of my kids is going to be a teenager and that kind of scares the shit out of me.

Instead I’ve decided to try to leverage my interests in some way.  I don’t really know where this path will head, but I’m hoping it will end up in…something.  Maybe something I can get monetary payment for?  Probably not, but I still think it will be illuminating.

Regardless, step one was actually cracking open Julia Cameron’s “The Artist’s Way.”

I am my own worst critic.  Seriously, I don’t need external critics (and can’t really think of any from my past) because I’ve got that covered all by my lonesome.  For reals.  Mostly?  I need a process to move past that.  I need to get out of my own way and I’m hoping Julia Cameron can help me do that.

So far?  Not too bad.  Ask me again in ten weeks.
