“Man cannot remake himself without suffering, for he is both the marble and the sculptor.”
The ball is rolling again.
I had forgotten the amount of work needed besides the actual creative process – editing, formatting, finding places to submit to, planning, preparing, talking with clients, purchasing materials, etc, etc. The other day I just barely managed to make it on time to my day job because I got stuck preparing a commissioned work.
This week has finally seen a restart of my creative work, though – mostly, I’ve been organisingand picking up resting projects to see what I can make of them. I have been planning for future projects, restocked some supplies, and I made some connections.
That’s the good news.
The bad is that it seems my artistry is veering off my planned course, so that instead of finally kicking off the projects I have been looking forward to I find myself staring down a path filled with entirely new projects. Soul searching and restarting one’s inner life can have that effect, I guess.
Either way though, I’m back in the game.
My biggest challenge now is to manage my days so i can set aside the time i need to keep this ball rolling and still be able to work on myself.
Wish me luck, Dear Reader – or better yet: wish me discipline!
