Artist's Way Journal - Week Six, Day One

Week Six!  Recovering a sense of abundance.  A God who can be involved with money?  I'll have to read up on this.  I'm of the variety that feels that God and money aren't really linked, but I guess I'll be open-minded.  

I still need to do a check-in from last week.  And the week before....

Last week I considered church to by my Artist date.  Is this a cop out?  I went by myself, and it seemed like a good thing to do.  And I felt inspired, and better than I did before I left the house.  I'm thinking this could qualify.  

1. How many days did I write?  Probably two in my leather journal, and four here.  A bit of a drop-off, which I'll try to remedy this week.  I realise now just how much of an impact it makes to do this writing thing every day.  Gets the creativity flowing nicely.  Or, better than it was. Yes, I do like them.  No, they're not yet my Morning Pages, more like my Nighttime Pages.  

Hmmm, the Page-And-A-Half Truth Point?  I think that's probably true.  Get the junk out in the first few paragraphs, and then the truth comes out.  Yes, I think so.  

2. Artist Date--church, as I just said.

3. Did I experience any Synchronicity?  Hmmm.  I don't rightly know.  Nothing comes to mind.  Oh, wait.  Yes, if this qualifies-- I was reminded of the fact that I said yes to doing a reading/workshop/program thing about Creativity and Spirituality in January.  It occurred to me shortly thereafter that this Artist's Way lark might be just the ticket for informing what I would say about writing and the spiritual life.  Not that I'm feeling very spiritual most of the time; that's something else I'm hoping to reclaim.

4. Any other issues significant to my recovery?  Other than I know more now that these Pages are necessary?  Perhaps that I'm realising more and more that getting out is important.  That getting adequate sleep is crucial.  That blogging isn't such a bad thing after all.  I am being creative when I add to my blogs, and I'm writing more on each one.  I feel creative when I blog.

So, I'm up to bed, and going to read some in Chapter Six.  

I'll leave this with one of the items I wish for:
