Riding the Dragon: 20 Wishes

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.

  1. I wish for a creative partner or partners, people who increase my energy and I theirs through interaction, and who can also create poetry, plays, and other projects as a direct result of such engagement.
  2. I wish I knew what project to work on next.
  3. I wish I knew how to promote myself better.
  4. I wish I had more help/guidance in my promotion process.
  5. I wish I knew what I was doing. (BLURT)
  6. I wish I could go dancing more – it’s the other half of my fullest self-expression.
  7. I wish I felt safer around other people in general.
  8. I wish I knew what balance to strike between blogging and book writing.
  9. I wish to put to use just about every supply in my studio.
  10. I wish I had a housekeeper.
  11. I wish I had a laundry service that picks up and delivers.
  12. I wish we could routinely get groceries delivered in the winter.
  13. I wish I had a SmartCar.
  14. I wish I knew more about sewing, design, and art skills.
  15. I wish I could knit or crochet. (Working on that.)
  16. I wish I could get massages on a very regular basis.
  17. I wish I had more direct income of my own.
  18. I wish I had a clear vision of how to proceed with the book on divorce after I send it to the editors.
  19. I wish I knew how to go about setting up film interviews.
  20. I wish I could get a poetry chapbook out.
