I learned something--my inner creative artist is more than happy to just stay put.
While I see how some personalities would absolutely adore this service, for me, juggling my own Type A personality along with two kids, a husband, a new puppy, and playing chauffeur to swim team, it seemed like a whole lot more *work* for me.
What does it include?
- A weekly artist date - A chance to discover something new, just you and your inner artist. I don't exactly have a plethora of time to take an alone date as it is, and in the rare occasions that comes up? I want a book and a Starbucks and no one bothering me.
- A weekly artist exercise - This week's was a 20 minute walk where I was then supposed to record all my deep thoughts. I gathered up the Dante puppy, because my inner artist realized that the puppy had to go too. My deep thought? There is a serious lack of trashcans along my walking path. I don't think that's quite what they meant by deep thoughts.
- Daily stream of conscious writing - This part actually made me want to cry. Everyday, in the morning (I am NOT a morning person), you should write three pages, stream of conscious writing, by HAND. There is so much wrong with this statement for me--mornings, writing by hand, 3 pages.
Again, I can see how some people would love this, love the journalling, the tasks, the ideas, but for me, it's not a good fit. But since this is BlogHer Book Club, take a look at some of the other reviews too.
