Until it Shifts

The art that comes out of me when I’m alone is much different from the art that comes out of me when I’m surrounded by people. The art the comes out of me when I’m rested is different from the art that comes out of me when I’m exhausted. I like to write in all different environments but mostly I start writing around 10pm every night by habit.

Lately, it’s been tough though.

A while ago, I read that art dates help. I’ve noticed in the past they help to keep me moving forward. What’s an art date? It’s when you take yourself out to get art supplies. You take your time and get what ever lights your fire. (The dollar store has a great art supply section these days.) Then you spend a couple hours creating in solitude. It’s suggested by the writer Julia Cameron in her book titled, The Artist’s Way.

Tomorrow I might have to try it. But I might just need to write and wait it out until it shifts.

Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily on improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
