Week 1, The Artist’s Way: Protecting the Artist Child Within
“Judging your early effort is artist abuse. . .In recovering from our creative blocks, it is necessary to go gently and slowly. What we are after here is the healing of old wounds—not the creation of new ones. No high jumping, please! Mistakes are necessary! Stumbles are normal. These are baby steps. Progress, not perfection, is what we should be asking of ourselves.” – Julia Cameron, The Artist’s Way
And for heaven’s sake, don’t ask the opinion of someone you know is going to be negatively critical about your work! I did that (sometimes still do that) and that form of self-sabotage is artistic child abuse!
Today I am spending the day with Linda at Sugar n’ Spice for our Quilts of Valor meeting—Jesus says “wherever two or three are gathered” there shall be fun and fellowship and Him (or something like that), so I’m going to call it a meeting even if there is only two of us!
Y’all have a beautiful day!
