Here is an article from Empty Easel's weekly newsletter. It talks about a new approach to sustaining our creativity especially when we are being too hard on ourselves. When we're saying things about "I just need to do it!" Or "what's wrong with me that I'm not more organized and working in the studio?" Do we need more structure, more goals, firmer intentions or just more time?
According to the author of "Standing at Water's Edge: Moving Past Fears, Blocks, and Pitfalls to Discover the Power of Creative Immersion", Dr. Anne Paris, it's more about healthy interpersonal relationships. We're at our best when interconnected to others. So again, this just solidifies my feeling that groups of people and especially groups of artists are very important to all of us in more ways than we realize.
