The Artist Way – Week 2~ Assignment 1: POISONOUS PLAYMATES~

This week the process is about “Recovering a Sense of Identity… the essays and tools are aimed at moving you into…a self defined you…” Artist Way.

This week I am looking at my POISONOUS PLAYMATES…

These are people around us who help us stay blocked…keep us from reaching our goal… they get in the way of our creativity… since they aren’t creating they don’t get it when we are trying to…

The author talks about CRAZYMAKERS… they like drama… and want us to join them… they just don’t get it…

“Crazymakers are often blocked creative’s themselves… afraid to tap their own creativity…” Artist Way

“Your crazy maker is a BLOCK you chose yourself, to deter you from your own trajectory” Artist Way

It’s our own self-sabotage…
