Reached again for Julia Cameron this morning – never fails.  No wonder ‘The Artist’s Way’ is a classic.  I simply quote these challenges:

‘What dream are you discounting as impossible given your resources?’ 

‘What payoff are you getting for remaining stuck at this point in your expansion?’ 

I’ll show you my answers if you show me yours!  OK I guess that means I have to go first so here’s one answer to the first question. 

I am discounting the possibility that I could make significant money from writing so I accept other work which limits writing time.  (Yes, I know all the rational arguments one way and the other but it’s about the unconscious assumptions and fears much more than it’s about beancounting -though you have to do some of that too.)

There!  Your turn now.

    Good grief, are you sure I did not creep on here at night and leave that comment under your name?! My problem is of course is choosing whole new properties and life styles to promote one thing or the other.
