the Artist's Way - Week Nine - Day Seven

Play Time

If you are a published writer, you most likely have a writing schedule with writing deadlines. It's hard to find the fun, when you are rushing toward that last minute when an assignment is due.

Take a moment and find the fun.

For at least 30 minutes, write something that is fun. This can be a poem, a short story, or even a character profile. Write this with no intentions of sending it out for publication. Write for the fun of it.

If your artist's way is of another creative venture, adapt this exercise. Artists - paint something with no intention of it being a master piece. Just have fun.

The point is to do this exercise with no goal in mind. Free yourself from obligations and just have fun.

(Note: anyone following this course along with the book will notice that some of these exercises are not included in the text. I'm adding them to the course to fill the seven days.)

Have a great weekend!

I'm a published author, well not in a big way, but still ;)

I don't have a schedule to write. I fit it in when I can, remembering to make it a priority--especially over such things as, say, TV.

Terry, I agree.
