Completing The Artist’s Way

I’ve completed the 12 weeks of The Artist’s Way, a system of exercises aimed to recover the creative self. It was an anticlimactic ending, given that I dropped off in the last weeks on some of the more impactful exercises. I have been spending a lot of time working both of my jobs, and participating in animal rights activism.

There has been quite a lot of change in my life in the last couple of months, and there is a lot more shaking up to come. I love and embrace change, so this is an exciting time of transition. Given that I did not give my full effort in the latter part of the 12 week program, I will be restarting at week one in the near future. In addition, I am continuing Morning Pages. These are probably the most engaging part of the program because I love the ritual of getting up early to write.

Even if I am distracted and my sentences are disjointed, I am allotting the morning time to purging some of the ideas in my mind. This is very helpful because it still makes me feel like my day is mine.
