future shmuture

November 18, 2010

Oh Creative One, at first this might sound as if it is induced by my pregnancy hormones. But, I have proof in my journals that it is not. I get tearfully and desperately discouraged sometimes and it feels like the desires I have for my creative life are just not worthy of coming true. One of the best bits of advice I got a while ago was from my friend Angela and for a totally different problem. She said, “You have to think ahead, but you have to deal with what’s in front of you right now. You can’t just sit and wonder about the future all the time.”

Discouraged Creative One, what must you do right now? What are the tasks that you must do right now, besides work to pay your bills? Do you need to submit your stories or audition or find your way to the studio? Take a deep breath, wipe away your worries and get the creative work done.
