Yesterday I ran across this post at Lisa Call's blog. I've recently discovered her blog and I really haven't been reading much of anything lately. So it feels a little serendipitous that I happened to read this particular post. Lisa writes about being stuck and the importance of writing as an integral part of her creative process.
Everything she wrote really hit home with me. It was exactly what I needed to read. I need to get back here and the truth is I feel like I'm always writing this post -- about how I haven't been writing and how I need to and how I'm embarrassed to come and say this again.
So then I keep not posting. It's silly. And I can feel myself getting more and more stuck.
So yesterday I painted one of the tables that makes up my L-shaped desk. I'm finally redecorating (OK decorating for the first time) my office/sewing room. This is kind of huge if you want to know the truth. If I keep it cluttery I don't have room to sew and I can't get to anything.
A couple of weeks ago I sorted and organized my fabric. And by the way. damn. I have a lot of fabric. Now I'm attacking the office side of the room and it's not pretty. But I'm making progress and I'm determined to turn it into a room I love to be in. It's going to take me a while to declutter everything, paint the room, and get everything the way I want it. I can already feel the energy shifting in that room and I know that change is really coming from inside of me -- from the changes I've made lately.
