This is part of my work in the Julia Cameron Artist’s Way series. The work this time is from the book the Artist’s Way at Work: Riding the Dragon. The responses are self-examinations and assessments based on work through a daily series of exercises. While I do keep some material offline as it can be very personal and jarring, I often opt to be fairly open about my experiences, both positive and negative.
|My Optimist Says||Change happens, and resistance to change is natural. What I’m doing harms no one and heals me, so I’ll keep going.||I know what it takes to do a lot more projects now! It’s exciting!||I am really having fun with the work I’m doing. I’m sure I can find support for these projects.||I think self-publishing my zombie story will be a hoot!||I’m laying track now that leads to income, and it’s increasing. I’m sure I can get to the point where I can pay other writers on my blog!|
|My Pessimist Says||People are starting to interpret the work you do on artist’s way as “disturbed.”||What if you miss your deadlines?||You know people are going to criticize you.||Fashion is shallow.||You don’t really have any money of your own. How do you plan to pay for marketing efforts and other support?|
I think I have my pessimist and my inner critic confused. I’m going to have to re-work this one later.
