“As artists, we must learn to be self-nourishing. We must become alert enough to consciously replenish our creative resources as we draw on them – to restock the trout pond, so to speak. We can call this process filling the well.” ~ Julia Cameron, The Artist’s Way
Scrapbooking seems to be my favorite way to ‘replenish the well’ this week. The act of cutting and pasting, stamping and sewing – it all brings relaxation and peace to my busy mind. I have 198 pages of a new manuscript to edit, but somehow taking an hour a day to play with the colors and textures of my scrapbooking keeps me from feeling overwhelmed about the writing project.
How are you filling the well these days?
