Week 3 was kinda tough for me. Some weeks I struggle with doing all of the morning pages and/or digging into the reading as opposed to zipping through it. This was one of those weeks. However, I still got a lot from it. As with anything, you can’t half-ass your way through this process and expect amazing results, so about midway through Week 3, I had to check myself and get back into this for real.
For me, that was the main “thing” from Week 3: getting my ish together. One particular quote from this week’s reading stood out from me. It’s from Goethe. He said “Whatever you think you can do or believe you can do, begin it. Action has magic, grace and power in it.” Slow clap for that one. Well said.
My Artist Date ended up being a trip to the Green Festival at the Jacob Javits Center here in New York. The event featured tons of vendors offering eco-friendly products. There was everything from body butters to paper made from elephant poo to vegan desserts.
I picked up a couple things, but my favorite was a bracelet made out of old typewriter keys. Very fitting for a writer, no? It was great to be surrounded by all those out-of-the-box thinkers. The place was full of creative and entrepreneurial energy. Another awesome week in the Artist’s Way process.
