Sound of Paper: If I took the long view

This is part of my work in the Julia Cameron Artist’s Way series. The work this time is from the book the Sound of Paper. 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.

This exercise is about sticking with it.

If I took the long view, I’d

  1. always have a new project going while I work on revisions. (I do, at the moment.)
  2. send stuff out, but always have something going on while it’s under review.
  3. remember that my byproducts are not temporary. Boxes and consequences tend to last.
  4. start seeding some of my “short work” necessary to promote the book on divorce.
  5. keep working on the Urban Wicca book while I’m doing all of that.
  6. start thinking of my career and what I want to create after the book has been out, and after the 3 year promotion period.
  7. remember I am producing a body of work.
  8. keep working the artist’s way path.
  9. have a five year and ten year plan going now.
  10. make a complete map of the baby steps I need to make for Fat Chic.
