The Artist’s Way: Recovering a Sense of Strength

Welcome back to the Creative Overthinker! Today I’ll be covering the chapter 8 of The Artist’s Way: Recovering a Sense of Strength.

I genuinely enjoyed this week’s material. It was a welcome change from the past few week – I recently expressed my feelings on the “dwelling on the old memories” part of creative recovery. This week was about a more active approach that included envisioning goals, plans and milestones.

So, I took a break for a week. In Week 4 post I mentioned that I’m taking a week long break to move into a new apartment. And as any break does, this one hit me hard. We started moving last Friday, and the place has finally come together by this Thursday. Before that, we had piles of clothes on the floor and a plastic bin for a coffee table to eat on. It actually was quite fun, but it took a toll on me.
