Hemingway got past writer’s block by telling himself to ‘write one true sentence’. As a writer and artist, I crave more permission to be honest.
Long ago, I decided to never post anything ‘negative’ online. But now I see how that has allowed me to only show the cheerful, positive parts of myself.I want to take the muzzle off and share myself more authentically.
So I am taking up Hemingway’s invitation with a new series, One True Line.Every day, I will write or draw what I consider a truth. Just one line. This project could take many forms; I am leaving it intentionally open.
Join me in your own daily One True Line. It’s free and there’s no need to sign up.
Simply follow along on Instagram or Facebook, using the hashtag #onetrueline .
I hope you are ending the year feeling good about your year. My wish for you is that you feel satisfied with your creative progress and ready for a splendid 2018!
This year, I didn’t do my full-on annual review, but I didn’t want to end the year without telling you about a few things that 2017 brought. I had some failures that I haven’t spoken about publicly and it didn’t feel right to not tell you about them.
There were also some big wins, life-long dreams fulfilled and of course, plenty of art, writing and adventures.
I’ve prepared a mini review for you with hopes it will inspire more creative authenticity all around. You can download your file here ↓
To the most splendid 2018 for all,
Do you feel lack of confidence, attempt too many projects, suffer from disorganization and plain old fear?
It’s easy to let our demons force our creativity into the closet.
Probably the biggest thing I do for my clients and students is help them get these obstacles – both inner and outer – out of the way so they can create with joy and ease.
When I talk about a program like my year-long Atelier program, I emphasize getting things done. But often we have to get things out of the way in order to get things done.
What would your life and your creativity be like with that biggest bugaboo finally gone? I’m taking a stand for creativity that empowers us and makes a difference in the world.
If you have a project that you are ready to commit to for real, check out The Original Impulse year-long Atelier program.
