“Start before you’re ready.”
— Steven Pressfield



This is the moment to deepen, or commit to, your regular creativity practice. Regularity — a daily practice, if at all possible — is key.

So what are your plans for creative practice this week? Given the specifics of your schedule, decide on a realistic intention, goal, or a milestone to reach for — and plan that time in your calendar. An intention as simple as “I will be creative for 10 minutes every day” or “I will gesso three canvases on Wednesday” is what it’s all about.

Share your intentions or goals as a comment to this post, and let us know how things went with your creative plans for last week, if you posted to last week’s Monday Post.

  1. Back on the morning practice routine, and feeling wonderfully re-centered as a result. A busy long weekend of recitals, performances, and family fun. That focus will roll into the coming weekend, as my Berklee-bound son graduates from high school on Friday! Will also be appearing on a local cable TV show on Thursday evening with my partner in crime at Open Studio, Ellen Olson-Brown.

    Last week’s creative/well-being intentions:
    * Morning centering practice w/journaling [yes]
    * Complete installment of nonfiction project for “5PM Friday” accountability group [yes]
    * One blog post [edit/yes]
    * Yoga/walk/run x3 [yes]
    * Gardening [yes]

    This week’s creative/well-being intentions (a redux):
    * Morning centering practice w/journaling [daily]
    * Complete installment of nonfiction project for “5PM Friday” accountability group [Th/F]
    * One blog post [W/Th]
    * Yoga/walk/run x3 [T/W/Fri]
    * Gardening
