The Artist’s Way

The Artist’s Way

I heard a lot about this Artist’s Way business but never really paid it much attention. A few people in my writing group have done it and wax lyrical about it. And after many, many months I decided I would look into it. I searched and searched and couldn’t find the book anywhere. Then one day, the manager of a local charity shop told me they had opened a new bookshop. ‘Come and see’ she said. Books, my one weakness, I went. As I was browsing, the cover of a book on yonder shelf caught my eye.

There it was, The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron. Even though I was the only one there, I dove across the room, fearful it would be magically snatched away and I clutched it to my chest! I took myself off to the till with fierce excitement and explained that I had been looking for this for months! ‘Oh it’s brilliant,’ the manager says, ‘Tell you what, there’s a present for you now.’ I know some of you will criticise me for taking something like that from a charity shop and that’s fine but I will tell you that I donate regularly to the shop.

I literally danced out of the shop! Approximately a month later, chapter three would tell me that this was synchronicity. I devoured the book and decided to try do the full 12 weeks. So now I’m going to tell you little about the book, some of the tools it uses and exactly what I’m in for.. Read more

It’s All About Me!

It’s All About Me!

 

Hello World!!!

 

This is the part I hate the most so bear with me.

 

My name is Susan and I’m starting a blog. I’m not really sure how that happened. I asked a friend for Twitter advice and now I have a blog. I know you’re reading this so thanks Friend! I think!

I’m not really sure what to tell you. I am a mother to a baby, a dog, a cat and a husband. You may read about these quite often. In the interest of simplicity, people I talk about will be called by their titles. For example I will call my baby, BB and my husband, Husband. Plain and simple.

I am a writer and my goal is to get my writing out there. So here it is! I am going to write about lots of different things. I am going to share some life experiences, some baby adventures and a little thing I have discovered called the Artist’s Way. When I’m not writing, I like going to the cinema and crocheting. So I will be inflicting my thoughts on films on you and I might throw in some crochet patterns. I might also post original fiction pieces I’m working on but that’s only if I’m feeling super brave or particularly stupid! That does happen, for a brunette I do have some epic blonde moments. I once spent half an hour looking for a bracelet that I already had on my arm, in front of my entire family. Mortifying! Read more
