Daily rituals. This is something that has perplexed me for some time now.
As an independent artist, I should have a regular daily schedule, right?
I should at least pretend to keep regular business hours.
My friend Linda over at Lime In The Coconut gave me a lovely book
which I read throughout the last two weeks.
It's filled with the daily rituals of tons of famous creatives;
artists, authors, poets, composers and more.
I found that there are more than a few common habits that run
between creative people.
For example there's a lot of walking that goes on.
A lot of mind altering substances are ingested.
And joyfully, a LOT of these folks put in only 3 concentrated hours
being creative each day. (So far so good!)
Mostly I confirmed that it's totally individual, the creative's day.
Surprise. And whew. Insecurity be gone.
Anyway, it's a fun read, one that you can easily pick up
for a moment here and there when you have one.
And if you're not lucky enough to have a good friend like Linda,
you can get it here on Amazon.
