Journal Writing for People Who Can’t Keep a Journal + Empowering Your Creative Self

I’m going to keep this short and sweet.  The lesson to learn today is to not make it precious. If what you do ends up being beautiful, resist the temptation to bask in your glory. Dwelling on the perfection of what you have done will only cripple your next creative endeavor. Don’t dwell on the perfect turn of phrase, don’t obsess over what you haven’t written.

When God created the world, he did it in six days and rested on the seventh. I always wished there was just one more day in the week, an eighth day just for me to pursue the thoughts in my head and translate them to the physical world. There are only seven days, however, so I steal my creative moments in between being a mom and my work binding books and making boxes for clients all over New York City. I love working with my hands, learning new things, and I'm here to share those lessons with you. There are only seven days in a week. Why not eight? Guess I'll ask when I get there.
