Wow Martha Beck got me on this one. As one of the other blogger's mentioned, I thought this chapter would be one that helps us explore our creativity. Quite the opposite. She wants us to explore our enemies, our failures, look at doing something completely different when we are approaching creativity.
Failure as creativity?? Wow that made me sit down! I have had my share of those and yes they were true learning experiences! The other suggestion examines your enemies (or the street term "haters"), list their traits and consider whether their traits are some I should take on? Heavy dose of medicine on that one. Somehow I do not feel comfortable lamenting on their negative energy.
So this is what I decided to do on this one. I decided that I would be creative in exploring new activities such as snow boarding for example. I decided to try something completely new and completely outside my element. Do something different each month-(I am not going to say each week) and use that as a creativity exercise to think differently about my desires and goals. Not sure what those activities will be but I am certain I will find plenty of new experiences.
I am an emerging self taught doll artist who is learning how to improve my craft. I started doll making 3 years ago and stopped due to entrepreneurial pursuits. Now with the help of my mentor Francine Haskins, I am beginning the craft again with much more vigor and interest. Please share this journey with me.
