I'm so excited I must share this with someone... a few years ago I read a book, "Nine Modern Day Muses and a Bodyguard" by Jill Badonsky. I found her website and subscribed to her newsletter. Recently, I was feeling as though my creative life was going no where, so I signed up for one of her free teleconferences and won free creativity coaching sessions with Karen Cowles - I was shocked, as well as a bit skeptical, when I won. But now I am SO glad I signed up for that call. Karen has a special gift for motivating creative types. She suggested I make something "small and quick that you get to a point that you like, though it may feel unfinished, and then set it aside." I had to bring it to our call the following week. I ended up making a "creativity spark". I had no idea what they looked like before this one appeared from my clay. BIG ((hug)) and HUGE thanks to Karen! :D I feel so inspired.
