I didn't want anyone who might be reading this to imagine I had drifted away from this commitment to a "creative recovery" so early on. Last week was just a little quiet, with no drama apart from running out of empty notebook and having to buy an emergency composition book at the grocery store.
This week, however, things started happening. Noveling came thick and fast. Blog posts were written. Three pages written every morning became just a thing I did. I have to say, feeling this comfortable with my creativity is pretty awesome. There are still things I don't like about the program (more on that next week!), but it does seem to be a good sort of roto-rooter for the brain.
Also! I finally went on a really good artist date, to the Museum of Fine Arts Houston. That was actually a lot of time, so I may have to try and do better dates with myself in the future.
