The marvelous Velvet, who is more marvelous than a sausage sandwich, is leading some of her minions on a journey through Julia Cameron's book "The Artist's Way". As such, we (Velvet's zombie army) will be conducting weekly check ins, as the book instructs. This is week one's check in.
1. I did not do any "artist pages". (Cameron suggests you begin each day with free writing for 30 minutes in a notebook.) Mornings are tough for me- we're often trying to get three people to three different places, making it hard to find 30 minutes for anything.
2. I did not do an "artist date". I took several unscheduled trips, places like Target and OfficeMax where I can browse pens and paper and think for a while.
3. Probably the most significant issue I came upon this week was writing a non fiction piece for my buddy Matt Potter's magazine Pure Slush about my father's passing in 2009. It was a lot harder than I had imagined it might be.
